Editorial Reviews

Legal drama ripped from the pages of history

Courtroom drama gold" --The Sunday Times (U.K.) [four stars] --Scripps Howard News Service

"BBC period drama at its very best" --British Heritage magazine

As seen on PBS

Andrew Buchan (Cranford, The Fixer) returns as fiery barrister William Garrow in this award-winning courtroom drama set in 18th-century England. In a time when prisoners in court have few rights, Garrow leads a legal revolution, coining the phrase "innocent until proven guilty" and defending the accused against the state. In return, he makes powerful enemies in politics and law. Chief among them is Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves, Sherlock, The Forsyte Saga), now assistant secretary to the admiralty. Jealous and vengeful, Hill believes that Garrow is involved with his wife, Lady Sarah (Lyndsey Marshal, Rome, Being Human).

As Garrow tackles difficult and controversial cases, all drawn from the Old Bailey archives, Sir Arthur’s net tightens around him. Soon Garrow is on trial, charged with "criminal conversation" -- 18th-century code for adultery. Can his friend and mentor John Southouse (Alun Armstrong, Little Dorrit, New Tricks) save Garrow’s reputation and career?

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 star 1700s period courtroom drama SUSTAINED June 15, 2011
Format:DVD
Quickly has become one of my favorite shows of all-time. Garrow's Law Series 2 confirmed as BEST HISTORICAL LEGAL DRAMA, tops Rumpole. Near perfection for late-18th century historical reproduction in sets, costumes, & dialogue. It's more realistic 1700s scenes than the true period. Stunning visual detail. The plots, cases, and people are from real British Old Bailey criminal court data- the beginning of justice. Sir William Garrow (1760-1840) initiated "Innocent until proven guilty." This TV series, accurately reveals him idealistic, rescuer for wrongly arrested. He's young, eager, belligerent, rash, arrogant, and a winner. Since Garrow was champion to the poor, this series gives viewers an accurate look at commoners' life. 18th century low class was often taken advantage of by aristocrats. Modern law has inherited much legal good begun by Garrow.

Stellar returning cast and powerful portrayals:
Andrew Buchan (Cranford) as barrister Wm Garrow could be played no better.
Lyndsey Marshall (Being Human) plays Lady Sarah Hill, exquisite in acting as well as filling her period aristocracy costumes. Those hats!
Alun Armstrong (Little Dorrit, New Tricks) plays the true-to-history character, John Southouse, Garrow's mentor, a solicitor (attorney).
Michael Culkin (The Hours, Lolita) is Judge Buller, mostly ruthless.
Rupert Graves (Forsyte Sage, Death at a Funeral-see the UK version) plays Sir Arthur Hill, Sarah's nasty spouse, now Asst. Sec. to the Admiralty.
Aidan McArdle (The Duchess, Ella Enchanted) is another REAL historical figure, John Silvester, a proud, rich, barrister who constantly opposes Garrow.

4 episodes each an hour, includes SUBTITLES, with multiple plots and one main plot carrying from 1 through 4.

This is one of the best series and I hope they do more. Great courtroom drama, love story and characters and the very best of actors. This is a must for collectors, and those who love the english language.

This is an excellent and historically correct period courtroom drama. It puts anything I've seen on American TV to shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous series October 9, 2011
By Lynn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watch series one first. This is one of the finest productions ever. The music, costumes, script, acting and directing are top quality. Too bad the U.S. is not more interested in this type of historical drama. Anxiously awaiting series 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still fighting for justice for all August 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Again in Season two (2) on two (2) discs with four (4 ) hour long episodes (plus a bonus feature that is most informative giving the importance of Garrow to the British legal system and giving much insight into the "real" Garrow), this very splendid British historical drama "Garrow's Law", shows how William Garrow (wonderfully and intently acted by Andrew Buchan) is trying to get justice for all in 18th century England including slaves that were only considered property not humans, lower class people and/or those looked down upon by the so-called gentry. What a marvelous series--it is so well directed and acted recreating the era being depicted fabulously. We get the broad picture of England's judicial system of the era that favored the aristocrats along with Garrow's attempts to make the system fairer for everyone. At the same time, the real character of Garrow along with his personal struggles (one being his love of Lady Sarah Hill the wife of the very nasty and powerful Assistant Secretary played brilliantly by Rubert Graves) is shown in a very believable way--one really admires Garrow and his efforts to change the judicial system for the better.

Season two (2) is very brilliant with wonderful scripts, great acting and marvelous recreation of the era--what gorgeous costumes. All four (4) episodes are really outstanding especially, to me, the second episode which deals with illegal love and Garrow continually being accused of adultery with Lady Sarah and suffering the ramifications thereof--really fabulous acting by all and tremendous writing on the subject of forbidden love. It's a very touching episode that I adored. . I never knew that history could be so entertaining. (By he way, the role of Lady Sarah is brilliantly played by Lyndsey Marshal--she is so good) I can't wait until Season three (3).

5.0 out of 5 stars even better than the first series. June 20, 2012
Format:DVD
This one just got better. The stories intertwine with Garrows own legal problems as he tries to defend his honor and love and against false charges of adultry. At least it wasn't a hanging offense. But other crimes like stealing and buggery still were. The tension is higher therefore during this season and the actors are all up to the challenge. Not only that we get a glimpse back into the brutal world of the 1700's , and the english system was far superior to most of the worlds courts at the time!, we also get very accurate historical sets as well. This one looks great and has a extra in words about the true Garrow. What a man he was by any standards! We all owe him and thankfully this show is out there to familiarize us with this law reformer who coined the term 'innocent until proven guilty". His influence can be felt in the U.S. as well as other countries as his cases were legendary in those days. This show is well worth your time , as it moves fast and is engaging om many levels. Rupert Graves plays a excellent villian too. His insane jealousy causes him to lose his own son and that is just a part of how bad he is. Alun armstrong plays a tough lawyer too , he's always done a great job which is why it's great he's in here. (he's great in New Tricks" too.) Watch this show ,you will be glad you live today and glad to have such well made courtroom drama available to you.
