Not only is it an engrossing and well made drama, it also makes you think about the rights and wrongs of the British jury system.
The story is quite simple: it is about the retrial of a previously-convicted multiple murder, and focuses mainly on the people who have been selected to be the jury, offering up things about some of the jurors that seriously make you think about whether or not random selection from the general public is the best way to go about selecting a jury for such an important case.
The backdrop for the entire series is an ongoing political debate as to whether trial by jury is a good system or should be replaces.
Interesting stuff, and entertaining too.
