Storyline

Will Burton is a junior barrister known as the Escape Artist for his skill at having his clients' cases discharged in court and Richard Mayfield, head of Will's chambers, wants him to go for seniority. Will is happily married to Kate with a son Jamie and an enviable life-style. His latest client, young Liam Foyle, is accused of torturing and killing Sandra Mullins but Will manages to get the jury to acquit him via a loop-hole, though he will not shake hands with Foyle. Later Will learns that Foyle has lodged a complaint against him and, whilst Will is at a reunion dinner, Kate sees a man peering through a window at her. The police are called and find a balloon with "Sorry You're Leaving" written on it. Written by don @ minifie-1

Why do they have smart characters act so stupidly?????
15 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love all the actors in this, but this first episode left me wondering if I should bother with more. Intelligent characters making incredibly unintelligent choices is a tired plot device. For example, wife has a harrowing experience at the very remote cottage with a "peeping Tom". The following weekend, wife CAN'T WAIT for husband to accompany her and son up to very remote cottage and so they go up alone? Really? I think I'd stay in the high rise that weekend. Also, father and son dealing with severe emotional trauma and potential continuing threats... Dad hasn't bought kid a cell phone to stay in contact? Again, we're supposed to believe he's this brilliant barrister... and yet, the bad character choices for the sake of plot make me not have a lot of faith in this so far.
