Storyline

Successful but over-worked barrister James Kavanagh defends David Armstrong, a Cambridge student of impeccable background who is accused of rape by Eve Kendall, the wife of his employer. Eve's husband Alan is having an affair and she is lonely, which, at first sight, makes her seem to be a fantasist fabricating a consentual happening, which is Kavanagh 's line of defence. However he also has to face the fact that his wife Lizzie, upset by her husband's workaholism, is having an affair with a colleague. Written by don @ minifie-1

A solid start to a great legal drama
16 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will begin by saying I am very fond of Kavanagh QC, mainly because I have a fondness for its star John Thaw. Nothing But The Truth is a solid start to a great, underrated legal drama, with a compelling story, a good script and excellent performances. Starting with the story, we are left asking ourselves, who do we believe, a young rich student or a housewife? Did he rape her or not? And how it unfolds at the end is fairly unpredictable to say the least. The script is also good, as is the direction, particularly in the courtroom scenes. And it was nice to see Kavanagh's family, and a lovely Lisa Harrow as Kavanagh's wife. The acting is typically excellent, with John Thaw brilliant as Kavanagh, the lovely Geraldine James as Eleanor Harker and Ewan McGregor appealing in an early role as the student David Armstrong. The episode does start off rather slowly, but overall it is a solid start for a great legal drama. 9/10 Bethany Cox
