A True Case Based on Fact
17 February 2018 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

This episode reminds us that all the cases in SCOTLAND YARD are based on fact. This one has a real judge talking with Edgar Lustgarten on the ethics of the case, and explaining the mechanics of judgement. The case itself is a classic example of identity theft.
