4.0 out of 5 stars Legal battles amid the aftermath of war, 30 Aug 2010
This review is from: Kavanagh Q.C. - The Complete Series 3 [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
The third series almost meets the extremely high benchmark set in the first and second.

Two of the episodes are dominated by the aftermath of war. In Mute of Malice, the relationship between two brothers returning from the war in Bosnia is strained by accusations of rivalry and a pending fraud trial. After one of the brothers is found shot dead, James perseveres in trying to uncover the true motive behind the apparent admission of guilt by the other. In the meantime, James's colleague, Jeremy, struggles to come to terms with a judge even more pompous than himself.

In Ancient History, by contrast, James confronts a scientist accused of conducting gruesome experiments on prisoners in a concentration camp. The solemnity of the episode reflects the subject matter, but the coverage afforded to each of the witnesses is too brief and superficial to allow the characters to become fully developed.

Christopher Eccleston delivers a fine performance in The Ties That Bind, where he faces a private prosecution for murder. James has a difficult role as a prosecutor, with his sole witness terrified by the defendant's intimidating family. Meanwhile, Jeremy's temper becomes frayed, as a misunderstanding overshadows his application to join a gentleman's club.

Litigation against a hospital trust is the subject of Blood Money. Sheila Hancock plays an apparently wealthy widow whose quest to sue the cash-strapped trust produces a rather unexpected outcome.

James returns to practicing criminal law in Diplomatic Baggage, where he suspects Foreign Office interference in the trial of a diplomat's daughter for murder. Despite a far-fetched plot, Lena Heady delivers a convincing performance as the accused.

Political interference in the justice system is also the subject of the final episode. In God We Trust concerns a convicted murderer on death row, as James is called to Florida to lead the defence fighting an ultra-conservative state governor. But it's James's private life that brings the series to an unhappy end.

Ancient History merits three stars. The other episodes each merit four, apart from Mute of Malice, whose intriguing theme deserves the full five.
