Storyline

Kavanagh's personal views and professional pride clash when his clerk Tom asks him to represent a former girlfriend Susannah Emmott. After they split she was briefly married to a Jehovah's Witness whose beliefs she took on before he became disillusioned and left her. She has a son, Luke, aged thirteen, whose father knows nothing of him and who needs a life-saving blood transfusion, which is against Susannah's religious beliefs. Jeremy gets himself involved with a group of tree-huggers out to save local woodlands. Written by don @ minifie-1

Very good episode, excellent Deborah Findley
16 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bearing Witness is another very good episode. The music is beautiful and poignant, the writing is intelligent, the production values are excellent as always and the direction is solid. The acting is also top notch, John Thaw is wonderful as always and together with a lovely Valerie Edmund he really makes the most of the compelling courtroom scenes, especially the one where he has to bear witness. Deborah Findley is excellent also as Susannah Emmott, whereas Joe Roberts is merely okay as her son Luke, who is seriously ill.

Overall, a very good episode, with excellent performances from Thaw and Findley. 9/10 Bethany Cox
