TV Tip: “Garrow’s Law”, BBC1, 9pm – 18th century legal world comes to life

I was already beginning to get worried that the BBC might have axed production of the new series “Garrow’s Law” (see this entry) – luckily, I was wrong!

Click the link below to read all about this promising new series on the website of Twenty Twenty Television, and mark the date in your calendars:

GARROW’S LAW
BBC1, 9pm

Andrew Buchan (Cranford, Party Animals), Alun Armstrong (New Tricks, Little Dorrit) and Lyndsey Marshall (Rome) star in a new four-part legal drama inspired by the life of pioneering barrister William Garrow on BBC One.

Garrow’s Law is set in the Old Bailey of Georgian London against a backdrop of corruption and social injustice and is based on real legal cases from the late 18th century.

But there is more!

Mark Pallis, legal and historical consultant of the series, has set up his tent on WordPress:

GARROW’S LAW

“(…) I want this blog to be a place where people can come to learn more about the cases that inspired show, and how the changes are still affecting us today. I will post facts and details from time to time and I hope you find them interesting. (…)”

Definitely a blog to bookmark, subscribe to and follow!
