The Hit BBC ONE Legal Series Returns!

Accused of fabricating a defense, Jack Roper (John Hannah) throws his life and the lives of his colleagues into turmoil after his single-minded pursuit of the truth puts his career in jeapordy. Tensions run high between Jack’s chambers and those of the prosecution, headed by his one-time mentor, Laurence Scammel (Paul Freeman), much to the annoyance of Laurence’s daughter, Laura (Lisa Faulkner). Relations become more complex between Charlie Darling (John Thomson) and his wife, Tessa (Susie Amy), as well as between Jack and Laura, who can no longer resist their mutual attraction.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Street Law 1st & 2nd Series July 5, 2008
Format:DVD
As a trial attorney in the U.S. I have seen/watched every legal drama series on TV, both US and Britain. Without question, New Street Law is the best that has yet to come along!It's hard to select which feature stands out the most..............the acting is superb; the plots and the actual trial cases are not only realistic,they are clever,fantastic,and keep your attention at all times. The interaction between the characters is outstanding, and each character is very well developed. The plots are very well written, and combine interesting facts as well as significant ethical issues which are handled extremely well. Along with the marvelous drama, there was appropriate humor. Americans have the added interesting aspect of seeing the Solicitor/Barrister system up close. How can they possibly intend to stop after only the two series?? This is the quality of television that comes along rarely,and should be encouraged and expanded, not abruptly ended. SURELY THERE WILL BE A SEASON THREE??!!??

5.0 out of 5 stars British Drama at its best. May 3, 2008
Format:DVD
Ok I got hooked after the first episode of season one. It is no Rumpole with tales and events but down to earth look at issues facing Britain and Europe in their quest for a united EEC. A purely British way of looking at themselves from within their continuously changing society. The humor is extremely complex, politically incorrect and very adult. It questions the established conventions with needs or reasoning of right or wrong. What is right and what is wrong and who determines which? The talent is British actors and actresses at their finest. The characters are as complex as the issues, but are presented as individuals with individual problems, both at work and in their personal lives. Surprisingly there are no weak characters in line up or the cast. This kind of drama is not my cup of tea so to speak. So I was completely surprised and pleased with this wonderful series. I am looking forward to season three.

3.0 out of 5 stars British Justice. . . August 27, 2008
Format:DVD
This highly enjoyable "legal eagles" series features several of my favorite stalwarts from British TV and film over the years, John Hannah (of "McCallum" and "The Mummy" fame), Penny Downie (PD James's Adam Dalgliesh series), and Paul Freeman (everyone's favorite cheerful villain - he was the suave, unprincipled anthropologist in the Indiana Jones movies), as well as a group of other British TV stars that I am just getting to know through this series.

One interesting aspect of the show is that it opens a window on the differences between the American and British justice systems. And, while most American cop/legal shows focus on catching the bad guys and prosecuting them, this series is weighted toward the other side: the efforts of the defense to ensure that the alleged (sometimes actual) perps, many of whom are poor and/or of color, get a fair shake in court.

This set is Season Two, and it was quite as enjoyable as Season One, which I also own. Set in Manchester (which, like Liverpool and Newcastle, is no longer just another gritty, grimy, English industrial city), the show follows the opposing careers of two barristers. In the UK a barrister is a trial lawyer, as opposed to a "solicitor", a private lawyer who doesn't do trial work. Jack Roper (John Hannah), is a defense lawyer, while Lawrence Scammel (Paul Freeman), is what we would call the public prosecutor who acts on behalf of the state to get the perps sent up. There is more to their rivalry than mere courtroom oneupmanship: Roper was once a member of Scammel's chambers and one of his most promising protegees. Roper's defection to the defense and setting up of his own chambers hurt Scammel and his wife and daughter, also prosecution barristers, who felt that Roper had betrayed them.
