| Excellent Series. Unfortunately, Too Short
This series is clever and thought-provoking. The period dress and the way that court was conducted are historically accurate and fascinating. As well as the serious cases which are considered, there are the humorous incidents which help to balance the series.

Many British period dramas focus on the upper class folk. This one, by contrast, brings us face to face with the working class, with their appalling living conditions, clothing and poor hygiene.

Our hero is based upon a real-life figure, William Garrow (1760-1840). He is idealistic, trying to make the law work for those who are unable to help themselves. Thanks to him, many of the rights we now take for granted, came to be accepted.

There are just four episodes of this fine series. I hope that the BBC will see fit to make more, as there is a lot more to be said.

As of November, 2010, I am delighted to report that continuing episodes of Garrow's Law are currently being broacast in the UK!
