An excellent legal drama
30 March 2014 | by rachel-marettSee all my reviews

My husband & I were fans of Crownies, which sadly ran for only 1 season despite being an excellent drama.

Janet King is a 'spin off' series, incorporating a number of other characters from Crownies. We both enjoy this series which is well acted & scripted as well as being a superior Australian drama.

It showcases the complexities of prosecuting offenders, the relationship with police & the state government, as well as the weight of public expectation.

We hope this series runs into the future with its talented cast of actors.
