Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones return in Peter Moffat's thrilling six-part legal drama about the lives, loves and hard cases facing a group of top end barristers. The hard-working and dedicated Martha Costello ( Peake) is incredibly young to have got silk and as a result the stakes are even higher. With tensions running high in the chambers, the ambitious Clive Reader (Penry-Jones) struggles to deal with his failure to become a QC, and Billy Lamb under pressure to keep the chambers afloat. As Martha finds an ambiguous ally in Caroline Warwick, a 50-something, sharp as a stiletto QC, Clive develops a fascination for a very beautiful and principled solicitor. Passion, jealousy and ambition take hold both in and out of the courtroom. As seen on ABC1.
