Court in the act!
17 July 2002 | by buckaroobanzai50See all my reviews

This long running series was of course set in and around a London court. Over three episodes which were transmitted during the week, viewers could follow the progression of a case, and marvel at the cross-examination of witnesses and defendants. It featured many actors who were unknown at the time, and have become household names, such as Ben Kingsley.

I remember one case in particular, called 'Sugar and Spice', which involved two friends, a posh public school girl and a spiky-haired punk girl, who were both accused of mugging a builder in the street. As in a real-life courtroom, the defendants' backgrounds and upbringing were brought before the jury. Viewers automatically assumed that the punk was the initiator of the attack, and had coerced her apparently meek friend into the crime. But it turned out that the meek shy posh girl was an absolute shrew (Hah!), after one lawyer successfully made her get angry and incriminate herself, and had been the instigator of the mugging.

Excellent!
