| A solid start to a great legal drama
I will begin by saying I am very fond of Kavanagh QC, mainly because I have a fondness for its star John Thaw. Nothing But The Truth is a solid start to a great, underrated legal drama, with a compelling story, a good script and excellent performances. Starting with the story, we are left asking ourselves, who do we believe, a young rich student or a housewife? Did he rape her or not? And how it unfolds at the end is fairly unpredictable to say the least. The script is also good, as is the direction, particularly in the courtroom scenes. And it was nice to see Kavanagh's family, and a lovely Lisa Harrow as Kavanagh's wife. The acting is typically excellent, with John Thaw brilliant as Kavanagh, the lovely Geraldine James as Eleanor Harker and Ewan McGregor appealing in an early role as the student David Armstrong. The episode does start off rather slowly, but overall it is a solid start for a great legal drama. 9/10 Bethany Cox
