Description

A thrilling new drama about the lives, loves and hard cases facing barristers on the front line of criminal law.

Martha Costello played by Maxine Peake is in her thirties, single, passionate and a defence barrister applying for silk. Innocent until proven guilty are four words she lives by. But how does this fundamental principle stand up to examination by clients who are sometimes good, sometimes bad and sometimes evil?

Martha is faced with challenging cases and surprising clients. Her beliefs and prejudices, her conscience and her faith in the criminal justice system are tested to the limit over the course of the series.

Joining Martha is Clive Reader played by Rupert Penry-Jones, he's funny, gifted and dangerous. The same age as Martha, they were called to the bar together. Both are applying for silk - how they perform in court is vital to this process and Clive knows how to play the game. Billy (Neil Stuke) is the senior clerk at Martha's chambers. He is dedicated to Martha, even if he secretly believes that she hasn't got a chance of being made a QC.

Nick Slade (Tom Hughes) is Martha's pupil and Niamh Cranitch (Natalie Dormer) is assigned to Clive. Both are thrown in at the deep end and, as "baby barristers", must sink or swim. Only one pupil will be taken on as a member of chambers. So who will it be and how will Martha and Clive influence the outcome?

Silk is a great DVD and well worth a look if you are into courtroom dramas. Really impressive acting and storylines to match. Non stop drama and for the money, a great buy.

This is british television at it's best! An amazingly clever drama that gives the viewer an insight into the british law judicial system, and for the first time giving stories of those that works the judicial system. Yes, it may be fictional but it gives the humanity side of the law system. Maxine Peake gives a convincing role of Martha Costello, a career-driven woman, whose made her career her life, but herself in an unexpected situation and how she is trying balance out her life as well as trying to protect her standing in her career from scrupulous fellow colleagues. A great watch and it makes you rethink the law and all the challenges that goes with it.
