In this superlative courtroom drama series, John Thaw ("Inspector Morse") is respected and feisty British barrister, James Kavanagh, a top member of Queen's Counsel. Beneath the powdered wig and sombre robes is a relentless mind able to tear the truth from a tangle of legalese, lies and desperate excuses. Even as his professional triumphs mask a troubled private life, James Kavanagh will go to any lengths to see justice served. "Bearing Witness": Kavanagh strives to defend a Jehovah's Witness mother (Deborah Findlay, "State of Play"), who forbids a blood transfusion for her son, against the hospital that sues her in order to treat the boy. "Innocency of Life": One case leads to another after a woman who accuses a priest of sexual assault is suddenly put on trial for the murder of her husband. "Dead Reckoning": After a boat sinks and five young men lose their lives, Kavanagh prosecutes the trawler owner (Kenneth Cranham, "Valkyrie") who insists that the vessel collided with a submerged submarine - and the Ministry of Defence is covering it up.
