Storyline

Kavanagh agrees to take on a private prosecution against Ian Vincent who is believed to have beaten 17-year old Graham Foster to death for having stolen a briefcase from his car. Vincent's stepfather, Ron Baab, heads a crime family and tries to buy everyone off with both money and veiled threats. There is little solid evidence and the case relies primarily on Graham's girlfriend who has also been threatened. In Chambers meanwhile, Aldermarten is anxiously awaiting the results of his application to join an exclusive mens club to which Peter Foxcott is a member. Written by garykmcd

Solid episode to a great legal drama
16 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story sees Kavanagh taking on a private prosecution against Ian Vincent who is believed to have beaten Graham Foster to death, and is a well written one. The scripting is also good, and John Thaw is excellent in the title role. Same with the production values, music and direction. So what is it that doesn't make The Ties That Bind a favourite. Well with the exception of Gary Powell as the victim's father and Lisa Harrow, nobody in particular stands out in the supporting cast. By all means the whole cast do a good job but it is nothing outstanding in the end. Overall, a solid episode if not an entirely exceptional one. 8/10 Bethany Cox
