| Wonderful and very clever series
When I first heard of Garrow's Law last year, it looked very interesting. I saw all the episodes and loved the series from start to finish. But I was saddened when the series ended as I thought it was one of the better programmes of the year. Deep down, I hoped it would return and be as strong as ever. When I heard it had indeed returned I was overjoyed. I couldn't wait for the beautiful period detail, the clever dialogue and stories, the classic Alun Armstrong moments and of course William Garrow himself. And I was not disappointed.

When Garrow's Law started, it was fascinating, beautifully written and handsome in its detail. When it returned, it was all three of those things and more. The period detail once more is very accurate and eye catching, the lovely scenery and sumptuous costumes are perfectly captured by the skillful photography.

The music is excellent too, often haunting and somewhat poignant too. The direction throughout I have had no problem with either, while the writing is thought-provoking and always clever and the stories and cases also accurate, interesting and well-written. The acting is outstanding I feel. Andrew Buchan is excellent as Garrow, very handsome, idealistic and very intelligent. Lyndsey Marshal is lovely too, delicate and well meaning. But I love Alun Armstrong the most, Armstrong is a wonderful actor I feel and he couldn't have been more perfect as Southouse. Plus there are plenty of classic moments with him, not only in the stories but also in the dialogue and facial expressions.

Overall, Garrow's Law is a wonderful series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
