Trivia

During the filming of a court house corridor scene, one of the background artists begin announcing to others that it was disgraceful he be expected to stand around for so long. His comments were overheard leading the producers to remove him from the scene to participate in another much later in the day, well after most of the cast were released. See more »

Garrow's dead sexy
15 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series is clever and thought-provoking. The period dress and the way that court was conducted are historically accurate and fascinating. As well as the serious cases which are considered, there are the humorous incidents which help to balance the series.

Many British period dramas focus on the upper class folk. This one, by contrast, brings us face to face with the working class, with their appalling living conditions, clothing and poor hygiene.

Our hero is based upon a real-life figure, William Garrow (1760-1840). He is idealistic, trying to make the law work for those who are unable to help themselves and is well sexy in this version. Thanks to him, many of the rights we now take for granted, came to be accepted.

There are just four episodes of this fine series. I hope that the BBC will see fit to make more, as there is a lot more to be said.
