Product Description

Product Description

The entire second series of this television drama starring John Thaw as one of the country's leading criminal advocates in London, who has worked his way up from a northern working class background. In 'True Commitment', when a right-wing skinhead is stabbed during a clash between radical left-wingers and a group of Neo-Nazis, the guilty party is difficult to pin down. Is it Mark Holland? Or his rich girlfriend Miriam Jacobs? Or was it an accident? Differing statements add to the confusion, and Kavanagh knows that his prosecution of Holland will be a truly difficult case. In 'Men of Substance' Kavanagh takes on the prosecution of two men charged with smuggling heroin into the country. The two men, Patrick Bennett and Kevin Gregson, are being represented by the icy Susannah Dixon, and Kavanagh knows he has a battle on his hands in the courtroom. Meanwhile, his wife is threatened by two of Gregson's heavies so he becomes even more determined to get a conviction. In 'The Burning Deck' Kavanagh and his friend and colleague Eleanor Harker (Geraldine James) are both in Portsmouth defending clients on charges of arson at their naval court martial. The tribulations of the trial bring the lawyers closer together, and Eleanor confides that her marriage has broken down. Meanwhile, Julia Piper (Anna Chancellor) has to decide whether to accompany her boyfriend to his new job in Nairobi. In 'A Sense of Loss' Kavanagh and Julia Piper find themselves defending 18-year-old Paul Warwick, who is charged with the murder of a policewoman while breaking and entering a newsagents. Although Paul confessed in his first interview, he is now adamant that he was at home with his brain damaged younger brother and single mother on the night in question. Investigating further, the lawyers soon discover that there is more to the case than meets the eye. 'A Stranger in the Family' sees Kavanagh joining Julia on the case of student David Lomax, who has sustained spinal injuries and brain damage in an accident at the Thameside recycling centre where he had his holiday job. Although specialists have asserted that David will always be a burden to his family, the defence counsel argue that David is not as mentally disabled as he pretends to be. Finally, in 'Job Satisfaction' Kavanagh, defending Caroline Wicks against the charge that she and her brother Sam murdered their father and stepmother, finds his concentration slipping in court when he receives some bad family news. His father is seriously ill following a stroke, and there are more upheavals in store at home.

I do like these stories but do wish they would come in order - one minute his wife is having an affair, next she is dying. They are such good stories for anyone who likes both John Thaw and law but that is my one criticism. Surely it is easy enough to put in order - I have all the Merlin series and they come as they were presented not all over the shop.

James proves his mettle as both a civil and criminal lawyer, in a series that includes some of the most memorable episodes of the entire collection.

True Commitment makes a powerful opening episode. James defends an anti-Nazi activist who is accused of stabbing a far-right sympathiser, whilst his former girlfriend gives incriminating evidence against him. But will the knives eventually turn on the girlfriend?

In Men of Substance, James prosecutes a businessman accused of importing drugs hidden in meat carcasses. As Customs Officers try to protect their informants, James resorts to interrogating the accused for his unexplained wealth.

Arson in a naval dockyard is the subject of the Burning Deck. An officer and a rating are accused of setting alight the bunk of a colleague in what appears to be an act of small-minded revenge. But as the nature of the men's friendship comes to light, it becomes evident that the jealousy is not on the part of the accused. The immense sacrifice displayed by the accused officer makes this one of the most moving episodes in all of the Kavanagh series'.

This sense of sacrifice is equally strong in A Sense of Loss. James defends a young tearaway who is accused of murdering a policewoman in an episode that vividly portrays the harsh reality of a bleak northern town.

In Stranger In The Family, James acts on behalf of a student who is severely crippled in a workplace accident. The reluctant testimony of a colleague proves invaluable in uncovering an even more serious malpractice.

Job Satisfaction makes a chilling climax to the series, in which a brother and sister are both accused of murdering their parent.

Excellent series, with a wonderfully realistic approach to cross examination techniques. Purchasing the complete series might prove a less expensive outing than purchasing 'The Complete Series 2' only. Although beginning with series 3 the entire edifice, arguably, loses it's drive and becomes rather pedestrian with fairly weak plots and lacklustre performances.
