Customer Review

on 12 July 2012
Procedural shortcomings and other detrimental aspects for the accused in the culture of the UK's criminal justice system are very important to explore. This culture is cogently exemplified in this series. For comparison I recently watched episodes of Silk (UK), Father and Son (UK), Luther (UK), the outstanding Cannes winner The Prophet (France) and the first series of the brilliant Garrow's Law (UK). Criminal Justice is distinguished by Peter Postlewaite's great performance. Unfortunately I found the endless blubbering of the principal actor (Ben Whishaw) irritating after episode two. I confess I should not have watched several episodes at the one sitting and that may have compromised my enjoyment so to speak. Ben Whishaw is actually a favourite actor of mine and I bought the series because of my admiration for his work. He is utterly convincing as Ben Coulter but I guess I like the hero to have a bit more stiff upper lip. A matter of taste. The director might have intervened to moderate such emoting, however well done.
