Trivia

The opening credits follow the general format set by the US Law & Order (1990) series: the word "Law" is followed by credits for the primary police detective characters, then the word "Order" is followed by the credits for the prosecutors, and finally, a group shot of the main characters together.

Not bad at all
4 March 2010 | by tonycarrSee all my reviews

Like an earlier poster, I've never watched any of the bewildering array of either CSI or Law and Order series. In fact, I haven't watched a US cop show since NYPD Blue and I haven't seen a US courtroom drama since the days of dear old Perry Mason so I have no idea how this UK version compares and nor do I care.

All I know is that this is an entertaining and engrossing drama. The stories feature different crimes, not just murder after murder and the good guys don't always win. Bradley Walsh is a revelation, Jamie Bamber is virtually unrecognisable after playing Apollo and Bill Paterson has never turned in a bad performance.

Excellent stuff
