Enjoyed the short series
17 February 2014 | by (Dallas, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Liked the acting, enjoyed the episodes. But the most revealing thing to me was when Jack was charged with violating some legal 'code'. That was revealing because it showed what I've always suspected about the UK and other EU countries.

The Gestapo is in charge.

The very idea that the police could VIDEO-RECORD Jack and the person he was defending during their meetings as lawyer and client is absolutely disgusting! Then to use that information against the attorney to try and get him disbarred... appalling. Also, if the show accurately reflects the law in the UK, UGH. The very idea that one's attorney cannot coach you as to what to say is repugnant. WHY HAVE AN ATTORNEY THEN??? No. Evil is the way of the gestapo and the gestapo reigns supreme in, at least, the UK and ITALY (after the debacle of a trial for the young American woman and then the Italian court's throwing OUT the verdict of INNOCENT and having ANOTHER TRIAL).

Perversion of justice to the MAX.

Thanks for letting the world know what goes on in your courts. I lived in Europe for several years in the 60s, but being a law-abiding person never got in any trouble with the law. Praise Jesus for that! (I wasn't so much 'law abiding' as being a healthy person who preferred to bike ride around the country and go to bed when TIRED rather than drink/carouse around). I'm will do more research on the law and how it is circumvented in the UK then write an up to date article about it. I'm always looking for new articles to write, and this one will be a 'money maker'. Thanks for that! Sorry the series ended so quickly and with a cliffhanger. I expect series in the USA to end abruptly and sometimes with bigger cliffhangers too, but generally in the UK the BBC is a bit politer to its audience. Tsk Tsk!
