William Garrow, this 18th century barrister who's determined to change the law, making a defendant innocent until proven guilty makes for compulsive viewing.
Andrew Buchan's portrayal of William Garrow is nothing less than impressive, showing tremendous skills getting to grips with archaic dialogue, moving from playing an obstinate, intemperate, rude, complex and extrovert character in Court, to being very tender and considerate in his pursuit of Lady Sarah as his love interest, played very well by Lindsey Marshall. Andrew Buchan is indeed a very good actor - he just needs to be discovered by a wider public.
