Garrow's Law: Series 1
| Drama | British TV | Drama - Period | Television | Drama - Legal
Legal drama ripped from the pages of history. A passionate young barrister leads a legal revolution in this superb new courtroom drama set in 18th-century England. Appalled by the corruption of London's Old Bailey, William Garrow (Andrew Buchan, Cranford, The Fixer) advocates for the accused and pioneers the art of cross-examination, paving the way for our modern legal system. Aided by his mentor (Alun Armstrong, Little Dorrit, New Tricks) and the beautiful Lady Sarah Hill (Lyndsey Marshal, Being Human, The Hours), he faces down ruthless bounty hunters; callous judges; smug solicitors; and MP Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves, The Forsyte Saga), who sees Garrow as a threat to the law-and his marriage. Based on a true story and drawing on actual Old Bailey court records, this award-winning series follows Garrow as he argues his first cases, rails against outdated legal practices, and shows that one man can indeed change everything.
