Need a flatmate? Mr. Garrow is looking for a comfortable home…

6 July, 2011 at 8:32 pm 5 comments

Filming for series three of “Garrow’s Law” is under way, so naturally, Edinburgh is currently the capital of the planet.

It’s the quiet Canongate close where the infamous Deacon William Brodie carried out a bungled heist that would send him to the hangman’s noose.

So it is only fitting that Chessel’s Court, an address steeped in legal history, has become home to the hit BBC drama Garrow’s Law.

OLD TOWN CLOSE SETS THE SCENE FOR PERIOD LAW DRAMA

While not much (means: nothing) is known about the cases featured in the third series yet, there’s some information regarding our dashing hero’s living conditions. In the article linked above, producer Nick Pitt says:

“I can’t give away too much, but in the new series Garrow’s not finding life so easy and is living in a very simple flat.”

Good grief! Do I have to imagine a scene like this one?

Ladies and gentlemen, we can’t have that! I demand decent accommodation for William Garrow! So if you should have a spare room – if possible with a desk, a wig stand and a nice, comfortable wing chair for him to sit in and sulk – then please send your footman with a note to Chessel’s Court.


Poor man… maybe I should knit some mittens for him?*

*One of my favourite blogs!

Edit: special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] paracletelux who pointed out the following two pictures to me (obviously spoilerish, so don’t click if you don’t want to know).

Looks like Mr. Garrow might has already found a flatmate…

Yay! Yes, please! *keeps fingers crossed*

    Unfortunately Mr Garrow appears too devoted to finding a way of sulking around Lady Sarah. Did he ever take any cases which involved maritime law? I would be certainly nice to see a smartly dressed Royal Navy Captain called as a witness. Garrow cross examining Hornblower type could make fun viewing.

      Good question – I’m not sure. He did take cases involving people serving in the navy (he had one case where Nelson was in the witness stand!) – maybe Mark Pallis over at Garrow’s Law can tell you?

      As for smartly dressed Royal Navy Captains – I just edited my entry; click the second link. 😉
