Re: BBC Original British Drama
Looks like the Beeb have commissioned a third series of Garrow's Law. I remember liking the first 2 episodes but I never saw any more.
Garrow's Law, the acclaimed legal drama inspired by the life of pioneering 18th century barrister William Garrow, played by Andrew Buchan, will return to BBC One for a third series later this year.
The RTS award-winning drama sees a return of the barrister to the Old Bailey to champion the rights of prisoners against the powers of the State.
An outstanding cast, led by Andrew Buchan (The Fixer) who plays William Garrow also includes Alun Armstrong (New Tricks) playing attorney John Southouse, Lyndsey Marshal (Rome) playing Lady Sarah Hill, Rupert Graves (Sherlock) playing Sir Arthur Hill and Aidan McArdle (The Duchess) playing Garrow's courtroom rival Silvester. New addition Harry Melling (Harry Potter) joins the cast as a regular and plays the role of George Pinnock, Southouse's nephew.
Guest stars for series three include Olivia Grant (Lark Rise To Candleford) who plays Lady Henrietta, Sir Arthur Hill's mistress, Derek Riddell (Five Days) who plays silk maker Matthew Bambridge, Patrick Baladi (Mistresses) who plays General Picton, and Cal Macaninch (Downton Abbey) who plays police constable, Richard Lucas.
Garrow was (wrongly) convicted of "criminal conversation" – a euphemism for having sex with another man's wife – at the end of the last series. As we join him in series three, he is at last free to live with the love of his life, Lady Sarah Hill, but her private agony is the absence of Samuel, her young son, held emotional hostage by Sir Arthur Hill. The cost to her of Samuel's absence – and the cost to Garrow of her attempts to get him back – will test their relationship to the limit. Meanwhile Southouse's nephew turns up in unexpected circumstance in episode two and provides both challenge and consolation to Garrow.
You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn't, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!
