Barristers. They are young, educated, soft on the inside, hard where it counts. Don t let the wigs fool you, when you stand alone in court, when your life is on the line, these are the people you want between you and the jury. The North Square chambers are finding their feet, fighting for a large piece of the criminal justice business in Leeds. Working for his barristers or maybe the other way around is their manipulative chief clerk. Ruthless, obsessive, with a razor sharp mind and a cosh-like sensibility, Peter McLeish loves the business and the business loves him. Featuring a powerhouse cast including Phil Davis, Rupert Penry Jones, Helen McCrory, and Kevin McKidd, North Square, first broadcast on Channel 4 in 2000, is a gripping legal drama that takes you into a closed world steeped in tradition and blows it wide open.

Update March 2013 - In a recent article referring to his own Oscar success, Daniel Day-Lewis ranked Phil Davis as one of his favourite actors, alongside Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep and Marlon Brando. Quite right, too!
Look at the cast and people behind the series. People who are now household names started on NS and the quality shines through every episode. In fact, series like Silk probably wouldn't exiist without NS. So, if you like quality legal dramas, fine acting, great plots, etc. buy this series. If only they'd stuck with it, I'm sure it could have run for years. As it is, it goes down with other missed opportunities, foiled by the people who went on to make Big Brother and Coach Trip.
Really worth the time and such a shame that the new head of Channel 4 just took against it and pulled the plug on the show. I can't remember of the name of the person in question, but it was a woman who must have had her head in a very dark place. This was a terrific piece of original drama and a shame that we have had to wait until Silk to get the basic premise back on the box.
Created by Peter Moffat(Criminal Justice and Silk,a kind of North Square for grown ups)the series centred around a legal practice in Leeds with particular emphasis placed on resident high flyers Rupert Penry Jones,Kevin McKidd and the excellent Helen McCrory and the chambers "fixer" Phil davis.
As to authenticity not a clue but watching this bunch of hedonistic,barely principaled and colourful characters was very agreeable.Fast,funny and at times alarmingly amoral,the show had it's electrifying selling point in Davis who has never had a part before or since that so suited his rat like features and brusque manner.His character was alternately paternal,sinister,hilariously amoral and breathtakingly quotable(no spoilers here).At times he could overwhelm the drama and North Square could lose some of it's focus.
There are reviews all over Amazon bemoaning "series cancelled before their time"-Jericho,Firefly,Flashforward etc etc but not many for british dramas.Inexplicable in 2000 and still today(C4 must have had cashflow problems or the cast must have hated each other - nothing else seems remotely sensible),North Square was high gloss,quality nonsense and its dvd release could not be more welcome.
For any Phil Davis devotee,an absolutely essential purchase.

Superb script, great performances and can't understand why the powers that be at Channel Four passed on the option of a further series. Not to be missed.Published 5 months ago by Race Mathews
