Storyline

Barristers. They are young, educated, soft on the inside, hard where it counts. Don t let the wigs fool you, when you stand alone in court, when your life is on the line, these are the people you want between you and the jury. The North Square chambers are finding their feet, fighting for a large piece of the criminal justice business in Leeds. Working for his barristers or maybe the other way around is their manipulative chief clerk. Ruthless, obsessive, with a razor sharp mind and a cosh-like sensibility, Peter McLeish loves the business and the business loves him. Written by Anonymous

hBest legal series I've ever seen - Cancelled by Channel 4 - Pity.
18 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was a pithy, intelligently handled 10 part series that was a pleasure to watch each week.

Seldom if ever have I seen something that was as enthralling, fast moving and that had characters who seemed to jell.

Congrats. to TVO (TV Ontario - Canada) for having given me the opportunity to look forward to an episode each week. The ten weeks came to an end all too soon.

I'm really sorry to learn that the creators won't have a chance to make another 10 episodes.

BJS.
