Keep that camera moving, I said keep it moving!

Sorry just giving some direction to Paul Greengrass, famous for the Bourne movies.

This episode is an antidote to those courtroom dramas where to get the accused off, you have to find the actual killer.

Kavanagh is hired to defend Annie Lewis, a high class prostitute accused of killing a wealthy businessman. It seems he was violent towards her but she denies he had anything to do with the killing.

The businessman's wife is shocked that her late husband had anything to do with prostitutes, although he used them regularly.

Lewis's pimp is willing to hang her out to dry just to make money from the tabloid press.

Kavanagh does the best for his client, but the final verdict is left to the jury. A big risk but that's the way it is in real life.

It is hinted who the actual killer might be. There is some light relief as Julia Piper wants to play cricket with the boys.
