| Out of order
I watched this on Amazon Prime and all the episodes were out of order. It was really confusing. Amazon needs to fix that. Even when I went to the individual list of episodes there was no way to figure out the proper order.

Having said that, apart from the Des character, I really enjoyed the series. He was a misogynist pig, I don't like the actor, and even though times have changed, it seemed unrealistic that anyone would put up with him. The other thing I found hard to believe is that while waiting for their hearings, people were subjected to Threats from other people. The court didn't protect witnesses at all. I can't believe how criminals were allowed to roam free and attack and intimidate witnesses. Hard to believe that would happen in a real magistrate court.
