Mrs. Sheringham: [voiceover] Whenever human beings are in trouble, that's where you'll find them. They may be tinkers or tailors, soldiers or sailors, nurses or bin-men, or strangers in the street. Perhaps, even - and this is hard to believe, I know - lawyers. They're here to help, to comfort, to guide.

Not too clever?
5 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked that it seems not too clever or complicated. I really like courtroom dramas and it's interesting to have angelic beings acting as lawyers. Reminded me a bit of that lovely old film with David Niven,- A matter of life and death. In Eternal Law the acting is wonderful, if it wasn't they would never have been able to pull this off at all. Because, I sit there all tense, even when the wings are out, until it's all over and I know that clock isn't ticking anymore. The cast are brilliant - isn't Sam West the best actor we have, what a voice:) I love the dry wit that his character has. I love that he is tortured with lustful feelings for Hannah. While I am 'rooting' (sorry) for him to give her one - partly I must admit to see if his ejac would really knock her head off.- I do understand that the struggle he has with these feelings are really what it's all about. The fall. If that old angel hadn't fallen for one of us. We would all still be dancing around with fig leaves on having fun in the garden of Eden. Mr Mountjoy is just so bureaucratic, but isn't that just so true of everything in our world. Our whole existence balances on the tip of his ball point pen. I really loved the latest episode. It was so touching. I love that Zac and Tom are caught in the middle as innocent tools of Mr Mountjoy. I like it that Mr Mountjoy has no compassion and would switch us off at the drop of a hat just because the paperwork was building up and anyway we irritate him. He made a mistake when he made us and he knows it. After all he made us in his own image. The imagery of the Great war hit home to me. After all wasn't that just a bureaucratic exercise devoid of any compassion towards flesh. I hope there will be further series in the future. I love the light and dark. The defence and love towards those who seem wrong and guilty and bad. If it isn't continued I hope the ending is that we all go out in a blaze of glory as Zak has his wicked way with Hannah, blows her head off and shoots his cream so hard and high that it blows a hole in the ceiling, arcs a rainbow, rips the sky into two and hits old Mr Mountjoy right in the eye.
