Very clever legal drama

A very clever legal drama, shown on television but one i would definitely have paid money to see. A Defence lawyer gets more involved in a case than he would like due to his client threatening his daughter.

Excellent performances by all the cast, who i must admit I've never seen in anything else, or atleast i don't think i have. they may have been in something but not impacted on me.

Hire it or catch it on TV, you won't be disappointed.
