Storyline

Barristers. They are young, educated, soft on the inside, hard where it counts. Don t let the wigs fool you, when you stand alone in court, when your life is on the line, these are the people you want between you and the jury. The North Square chambers are finding their feet, fighting for a large piece of the criminal justice business in Leeds. Working for his barristers or maybe the other way around is their manipulative chief clerk. Ruthless, obsessive, with a razor sharp mind and a cosh-like sensibility, Peter McLeish loves the business and the business loves him. Written by Anonymous

Gets even better with time
28 October 2014 | by (London Town) – See all my reviews

hello again. Its been ten years since my last review of this show and finally I got to see it again on DVD, only 14 years since I last saw it, and its even more wonderful than ever. I still mourn its cancellation. Mckliesh, as he looks around that pub at his family. Oh that's just a wonderful bit of direction, in fact the editing is superb as well. Great line of casting, I suppose I will have to check out SILK now to see how it compares. Oh yes and I love the intro graphics as well, good music and animation. I suppose its too late to bring it back, ah well, maybe ill write another review in ten years if IMDb will let me
