Andrew Buchan (The Sinking of the Laconia, Cranford) stars as William Garrow, a revolutionary legal mind determined to defend the downtrodden in 18th-century England. Based on a true story, these three complete series follow Garrow as he advocates for prisoners' rights and pioneers the idea of innocent until proven guilty, aided by his mentor (Alun Armstrong, New Tricks) and the lovely Lady Sarah Hill (Lyndsey Marshal, Being Human).
As he tackles divisive cases, Garrow runs afoul of some of England's most powerful and notorious figures, including bounty hunters, judges, and a ruthless MP, Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves, Sherlock, The Forsyte Saga). Drawn from actual Old Bailey court records, Garrow's Law is a fascinating peek inside the evolution of the modern legal system, filled with "excitement, tension, passion, humor, and drama" (The Guardian, U.K.). 12 episodes on 6 DVDs, approx, 716 minutes, SDH.
