Fascinating British Courtroom Series
6 September 2020 | by lchadbou-326-26592See all my reviews

Since "Screenman" wrote his 2010 user review, the series has become available on DVD through the fine British company Network.As an American viewer who obtained the DVD set, I was intrigued comparing the differences between the American justice system and the procedures shown in almost 40 different cases of the English system. Margaret Lockwood has the time over the course of the three seasons to create a fully rounded character who is one of the more interesting achievements of her distinguished career.The program manages to sustain itself during these three years and mostly avoids the pitfall similar crime oriented shows like Law and Order have gotten into of being distracted by subplots about the private lives of the protagonists In this case, the conflict that arises is one between an up and coming woman barrister in the early years of feminism and several men she needs who want her to take a break from her work and consider marriage, which she feels is premature. Highly recommended!
