Quotes

[introduction to each episode, spoken over opening titles]
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.

Potentially great moral drama - but needed more development time ...
10 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked the premise of this short series - but many of the episodes story lines simply "ran out of runway". They needed more time or perhaps more of an arc should have been developed so that episodes always left you wanting to see the next one (as in LoM/A2A). This is, of course, difficult to establish ...

We need more high-concept, intelligent moral dramas like Eternal Law - but they really are hard to justify for a highly commercial, prime time slot like ITV1 which has to constantly bring home the bacon on a number of fronts.

My guess is that a more sympathetic and sustainable audience could still be gained on rerun without the pressure of generating huge audiences - this is not LoM/A2A after all - it could easily establish a solid following if more sensitively positioned. (By the way, we all watched it here unfailingly - even my youngest teenage daughter!)

I will certainly be buying the DVD ... there were some good if occasionally uneven performances and the ideas behind the writing were actually top class (with a number of stunning LOL throwaway lines) - just perhaps a bit rushed and a little too "implicit" in places.
