Rejoice! Garrow’s Law will be repeated on BBC4! And what we missed…

Time to dry your tears, my friends: thanks to BBC4, you can now enjoy once more all series and episodes of the wonderful 18th century drama “Garrow’s Law”, featuring the very lovely Andrew Buchan. Yes, I know, this was a long sentence, but never shortcut a lawyer. Repeats will start on 20th June, 2012, 10pm!

GARROW’S LAW

But don’t put those voodoo dolls of Danny Cohen – that’s the fine gentleman at BBC responsible for the axing of Garrow’s Law, to finance stellar new glittery TV drama experiences like, for example, well, can’t think of anything now, but I’m sure it’s all fantastic – because according to Tony Merchant, this is what we didn’t get to see:

“There would have been a ‘medical negligence’ storyline involving Lady Sarah in childbirth in a time when the power of male doctors was unassailable and death in childbirth common enough not to raise questions about the ability of doctors.”

    Oooh that’s great to see that GL is being repeated – good chance for anyone who missed the earlier series to catch up!

    Great find on the Tony Marchant interview – medical negligence sounds amazing, if only we’d had a series 4! Maybe BBC4 could pick the show up? Wishful thinking on my part, but one can dream! 🙂
