As the series opens Martha is already a QC of a yearās standing and, on the back of the Jody Farr case, is building her practice and particularly a reputation for winning unwinnable cases. But now Clive has got silk too and heās specialising in Prosecution. The criminal bar is a small world and increasingly Martha and Clive are pitted against each other in court. Martha finds it hard to keep the personal and the professional apart and never more so than when she loses to Clive in a big case early on. Marthaās growing reputation means that her cases attract headlines more frequently either because the case is a cause celebre or because her defence is breaking new ground legally. Her cases will feel even bigger, the stakes higher, heaping the pressure on Martha.

The first two series of Silk were very good. Although requiring some suspension of disbelief, the storylines were good, characterisations believable and the acting excellent. Series 3 was a big let down. Although a couple of episodes were better than the rest, the increasingly hysterical tone (coupled with an odd lack of atmosphere, particularly early on in the series) rendered the last couple of episodes almost unbelievably bad. The final part was completely confused, and confusing, and there was no clear resolution to several story lines. I appreciate that film makers sometimes feel the need to tell their stories in an individual and opaque manner, but on this occasion the story telling was really poor. What clashed particularly was the way in which the central characters changed dramatically, so as to become almost unrecognisable. The final episode was a complete betrayal of Phil Davis' character, and a waste of a very fine actor. I'm glad I watched it, in general, as I still like the show, but this was a very poor ending to a very enjoyable show.

The story lines become a tad wilder and more speculative in this series (and the last episode thrumms with a weird dissonance as things spin apart from the very centre of Shoe Lane) but I watched this for the compelling performances of each actor as their characters drive inexorably on towards the final dissolution of personal and private issues: vulnerability crippling the usually astute, commanding Martha, Clive bowing once more to the temptations of mammon and (literally) embracing the enemy and Billy - dear heaven, Billy. Neil Stuke stays with this proud, self-contained almost Mephistophelean man to the very end, producing an utterly commanding performance as the dying clerk. Beautifully nuanced, utterly hypnotic, this performance is completely unmissable and worth watching Series 3 for, alone. As his silks embrace their own personal vulnerabilities and stumble, Billy's slow descent towards death is resonant with grace and power and a palpable sense of peace. Neil Stuke is simply unmissable.

This was a very good series, though strange how Martha Costello was pregnant with Clive's baby - yet you never saw them dating; only an occasional visit to a pub. Clive Reeder (Rupert Jones) - was physical or flirtatious with everyone in a skirt.

It was hard to follow at first, jumped right into a 'clerk' and we had no idea why 'Billy" appeared to be the lawyers boss. Watching more episodes explained who's who in the zoo.

Overall, we really liked the series but both of us felt that the ending was terribly disappointing. Maybe they left it like that, uncertain if the show would be renewed. Bit of a let down; had it not been for the ending, would rate it a 4.

Great continuation of the Characters of the Law firm from Series I and II. This series was a bit more intense than previous series and didn't contain as much humor as the earlier series. Nevertheless, it was well done, even though everything took on a much more serious aspect. Billy, the Office Manager has received bad news regarding his health and has made great efforts to keep the firm together. As in previous series, I found that the firm revolves around Billy and his excellent handling of situations where the lawyers are out of their elements. I hope that the next series will contain a bit more humor and focus more on the characters than the circumstances of the law.

I loved the first two series of Silk -- all the central characters are unique, with flaws and virtues -- no Mary Sue Sparklebutts (of either gender) here. The third series was a bit less satisfying, and though I would still strongly recommend it, the final resolution puzzles me, because it ... wasn't. I understand this is the final series for Silk, which made it doubly puzzling. I honestly have no idea what (or rather which possibility) the writer was trying to convey. I'd have to go into spoilers to discuss it further, so I won't, but ... geez. Martha & crew deserved better.

While this Series of Silk had the same Production values, excellent Scrip Writing , plot development and superb performances as the previous two the ending was disappointing . Martha obviously had to disengage as her position was redundant but we were left wondering just why the choice was made to finalise the story of "Shoe Lane" with this pregnant ending leaving the audience unsatisfied.

What a disappointment after the first 2 brilliant series. It was if the writer was rushing to reach the end and jammed as much strangeness in a short time frame as he could. The ending was what? Well, it wasn't an ending that's for sure - what the hell was going on there. Everyone metamorphosed into a caricature of what they might have become in 20 years time not 20 weeks!

This was a fabulous series. The screen writers did a tremendous job and the actors are all top flight. This series is very educational and is rather spot on in covering legal procedures and complex issues that can crop up during proceedings. I just wish there was a Series four. Silk was most likely the best series of a legal nature I have ever viewed. Terrific!
