Trivia

Originally each season was going to be shown as 13 complete episodes but this was later changed to blocks of 7 and 6 episodes per series to spread out over the year because the production was finding it difficult filming on the streets of London. However to make up for the low number of episodes North American countries like USA and Canada air the series in the original block of 13 episodes. See more »

Goofs

The scene cards at the start of the trial sequences say "Crown v. xyz". In England prosecutions are in the name of the Queen and are annotated "R v XYZ" See more »

Quotes

Narrator: In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

Not bad at all
4 March 2010 | by (Sompting UK) – See all my reviews

Like an earlier poster, I've never watched any of the bewildering array of either CSI or Law and Order series. In fact, I haven't watched a US cop show since NYPD Blue and I haven't seen a US courtroom drama since the days of dear old Perry Mason so I have no idea how this UK version compares and nor do I care.

All I know is that this is an entertaining and engrossing drama. The stories feature different crimes, not just murder after murder and the good guys don't always win. Bradley Walsh is a revelation, Jamie Bamber is virtually unrecognisable after playing Apollo and Bill Paterson has never turned in a bad performance.

Excellent stuff
