Penelope Keith Can Do No Wrong
9 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This failed TV series lasted only a year but Penelope Keith is very funny as the acerbic barrister who writes children's books on the side. Aside from her legal battles, she also bandies words with a bible-thumping prosecutor and a wise-cracking judge.

Oddly structured series opens with Keith taking a case and appearing in court, always opposed by a pompous bible-thumper (Simon Williams) and always presided by the same judge (Charles Kay). Other series regulars make no impression at all. At the halfway point, the judge delivers culinary opinions as to where the jury should eat lunch. Second half wraps up the court case in a tidy package.

Series seems bound by the unchanging story structure, and the parade of "funny" witnesses for and against whatever case is being tried. Keith, however, is very sharp and funny as she corrects the judge (and everyone else) about points of grammar as well as law. After the failure of this one, Keith immediately went into the excellent NEXT OF KIN series and had another hit.
