Courts
30 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

I've never managed to catch this move - I see that in the UK it on;y had a TV release.

However I was an extra on the jury in some of the interior court scenes. They were filmed at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court and I recall tour-de-force cameos from Freddie Jones, Samantha Bond and Charles Dance.

Not having seen it, I've no idea if there were other courts used, or whether the interior and exterior court scenes were edited as if in the same place.

I do remember it was the day of Princess Di's funeral and North London was remarkably quiet and empty.

If anyone has an off-air copy, I'd love to see it!
