An absolute classic
8 April 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

15 years on, this show continues to set the bar higher than any other courtroom/crime drama can achieve. No gratuitous sex, violence, bad language etc. Both the main plot and the "cameo" plots are brilliantly carried out, highlighting both the majesty and the failures of the justice system.

Simon Westaway again plays Peter Faithful from Pheonix, and again is a love-hate character. The Hennesseys are a great characterisation of a certain Melbourne family (and where real life has more recently imitated fiction) One of the all time Aust classics and with Phoenix represent the zenith of police/court/crime drama - no dramatics, just great plots and story lines. Thankfully it is now on DVD and is still brilliant
