Georgia Taylor (Casualty
, Coronation Street
) and critically acclaimed Paterson Joseph (The Hollow Crown
, Peep Show
) join Law & Order: UK Series Seven
Taylor is defence barrister-turned-Crown Prosecutor Kate Barker, fresh from the more lucrative side of the courtroom. She may not look like the average prosecutor but Kate is straight-talking, charming and likeable--and very used to getting her own way. She is headstrong, experienced and not a fan of hierarchies; the perfect combination to infuriate her new associate Chief Prosecutor Jacob Thorne (Dominic Rowan). DI Wes Leyton (Joseph) has been in the force since the age of 18. He's been through it all and knows the only way to change things is from the inside. Newly appointed as DI, Wes is frustrated by the amount of time spent dealing with budget issues and filling in forms but he is determined to make a good job of it and get results. Wes and Ronnie (DS Ronnie Brooks played by Bradley Walsh) go way back and although they weren't best mates they share a similar outlook on life. But his partner DS Sam Casey (Paul Nicholls) isn't so sure of his new boss… This series sees the police and legal teams facing dramatic storylines including a devastating train crash, kidnap and child grooming. Top guest stars include Amanda Mealing, Patrick Baladi, Jan Francis, Ramon Tikaram, Ian Bleasdale and Daniel Casey.
