Some commenters have called this story unbelievable. It may be a bit clunky, but such things have happened, in Britain and the US. At the time (late 80s?) there was a panic over something called "Satanic abuse". Many social workers came to believe that there was a secret society of Satanists abusing children, and they produced "evidence" of this delusion by, as Rumpole points out, asking children leading questions. They also got children to play with dolls and drew conclusions from their play. Hard to dramatise. Joanna David is excellent as the over-caring social worker. The little girl is excellent. Ballard and Erskine Brown are increasingly caricatured. Mixed in with all this is a subplot about the Scales of Justice ball which the Rumpoles play beautifully. In-joke - Leo McKern was apparently a nifty dancer in real life.
