The seventh volume of 'Crown Court' doesn't disappoint - it's as excellent as the first six! I'm at a loss, I must admit, to understand why Richard Wilson's contribution is emphasised at everyone else's expense, but there you go.... one of the strongest stories concerns an aristocratic family where the son is accused of theft and the mother is a witness for the prosecution; this is nail-biting stuff but I wonder whether any parent should 'sneak,' even out of respect for the law!
As always, most of the dry but witty ripostes come from the judiciary - especially the urbane William Mervyn and, as the battling but optimistic lawyer Charles Lotterby, David Ashford enlivens each script he turns his hand to. Volume 8 can't be too far away - can it?
