Michael Kitchen (Foyle's War), Caroline Katz (Doc Martin), Peter Blythe and Eleanor David (Rumpole of the Bailey) and Philip Whitchurch (My Hero) all stumbled into this overlong would be drama, and regardless of their excellent abilities, they are not sufficient to make up for a plot that literally makes mockery of coincidence. After winning a major case, Steven Vey "misunderstands" the clear signals coming from his new secretary and rapes her or maybe he doesn't, but he does attack her. Immediately afterwords he gets appointed to a judgeship and Nicky threatens to expose him if he doesn't resign. In the meantime his unknown son Eddy, a product of a brief liaison with his mother, discovers he was adopted and Vey is his real father. Eddy travels to London to find his real father and ends up getting hired by him to make Nicky "disappear." The problem is Vey is very sympathetic and you actually root for him; Nicky who is a sexual teaser sets herself up for "we really don't care what happens to her" because she is an idiot. However we do care about Eddy and what he will or won't do. And there is a nice plot twist tossed in regarding Vey's wife and his best friend. Only you can decide if this is worth four hours of your time, excellent acting aside.
