Storyline

Martha's preference is to act for the defendant but Billy persuades her it will help her silk application to act as a prosecutor,against Tony Paddick,a young teacher accused of the attempted murder of a pupil who persecuted him. Martha argues with the C.P.S. solicitor that the charge should be Grievous Bodily Harm and finds her humanity and ambition at odds with each other in her new role.After taking advice from the Law Lady interviewing her for her silk,Martha concocts a way of helping Paddick receive a lesser sentence,chiding his defending barrister for letting her do his job. Kate hacks into Billy's computer to find money unaccounted for but fails to get Martha on side against him. Nick wins his second solo case but Niamh,feeling under-used,agrees to see Gary Ross on behalf of Martha. Written by don @ minifie-1
