As the series opens Martha is already a QC of a year’s 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 he’s 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. Martha’s 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.

Great British drama. I enjoyed the series from the first to the last. I cant think of anything else to write. It will come down to personal choice. I liked the final series and am very sorry to see it end. It appears the British programme industry never seems to know when they have gold in their hands. This should have been an ongoing series.

After reading so many negative posts on Series 3 we were almost not looking forward to watching this DVD, but what a pleasant surprise we got. It was a great series and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Buy it and see for your self, it has certainly been worth the wait as far as we are concerned. Roll on series 4 :)

I have waited a long time for this series to be available & I'm not disappointed. The writing is top shelf & the actors are totally inspiring. Shows of this quality are rare & we should rejoice when we find them.

Series 3 of 'Silk' was a disappointing end to what started as an outstanding and superb series. From the start, series 3 did not sit right with me. Martha was no longer the revered central character and Clive became the darling of Shoe Lane, and the bench, in his first year as QC . This turned the entire series on it's axis and confused me. Then I watched the final episode and I can only assume, after coming to the frustratingly poor ending, that the writers had been told to end the series quickly and that that would be the end of series 3 and 'Silk'.
I am extremely disappointed with this series and, quite frankly, feel that the ending itself leaves an opening to return for further 'Silk' episodes to put to rest the real meaning of this shambolic and surreal scene.

I' d forgotten I'd pre ordered the DVD. I had so enjoyed the 1st two series so had every reason to think the third series would be as good. How wrong I was. I thought the Martha character quite bland really, not what we'd come to expect as though Maxine P was bored with it all. Clive, was much better - didn't try and hog the 'action' as you'd expect but became a character that could really grow. Well done Rupert P. However simply can't recommend, sorry.

The series was great, but I am so upset that the BBC cant commit to series like the Americans. It means that as a viewer we get short series (like this and Sherlock) and never really get in to the characters and stories.

The rating is not a comment on the quality of the season, just how upsetting it is that there isn't more to see. Why get our hopes up with something that could be good.

Excellent, except for Series 3 - "Since practicing law for 20 years I know when someone is guilty or not, by looking them in the eyes" - not believable - and repeated by a high ranking policeman. Next thing you know we won't even need courts - just "look into their eyes" - laughable.

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!
