Storyline

Martha prepares to act for Mark, who admits that he and girlfriend Emma Slater broke into the judge's house to rob him but claims he killed him in self defence. Head of chambers Alan Cowdrey returns and wants the case but Martha hangs onto it with Kate as her assistant. Much of her case involves attacking the victim's widow, who is dignified and sympathetic, making Martha seem cruel. However when Martha is rushed to hospital - where she miscarries - Nick comes up with evidence which shows that Emma killed the judge to stop him killing Mark and she is found guilty of manslaughter, not murder. Billy learns that Kate and John want to set up a rival chambers with Clive Reader, whom they hope will get his silk. In the event it is Martha who gets the distinction, which she uses to keep the firm together. Written by don @ minifie-1
