Reviews

Martha is now an experienced QC at the height of her powers and should be enjoying the high-profile cases and media attention that implies. But as her cases become ever more morally complex Martha questions whether her role as a defence barrister is enough. Her close relationships are put to the test when her ambitious colleague and rival Clive Reader finally becomes QC, challenging her to confront her feelings for him. As Head Clerk Billy Lamb struggles to keep the huge secret he’s been concealing he makes plans to secure the future of Chambers, with or without him. Effective new Practice Manager Harriet has other ideas and wants chambers to prosecute more and defend less potentially isolating Martha. As she struggles with her conscience her faith in the justice system is tested to breaking point. Where does she really belong?

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.

I love this series and was sorry that it finished after a third season. Maxine Peake is brilliant as the bright yet compassionate "northern" barrister, Neil Stuke as Billy the senior clerk who gets results, often through questionable practices. The pace is fast, with edgy dialogue.

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.

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!

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.

A warm and welcome return by our characters to the bar and with further development this year they all face challenges. This is an excellent series which I hope runs for some time yet. this series offers heart wrenching dramas in a legal framework which remind you of Spooks for their complexity and acting quality.
