Reviewed on 11/17/2018...
2010 BBC series. Written by Jimmy McGovern, the bloke responsible for Cracker, and well, he seems to have a penchant for engulfing his characters in tribulation. Each of these tales is just about people's lives, fragile as they are. And the way ordinary people get roped into situations which are quite understandable. And, some are where people get so lost in the moment that clear reasoning slips. And well, yeah, there's plenty of idiotic folk out there too. A handful of these scenarios are a direct result of frustration with a bankrupt justice system, bound by bureaucracy. Even people utilizing the legal system to torment others or institutionalized bullying. Some might consider this series demoralizing due to this factor. Truth is, it's just telling things like they are. This is not formulaic crime drama. And every one packs a good punch.

Each episode starts with the accused in their cell waiting for the decision of the jury, and there really is no guessing. Some of these are quite the surprise. Very interesting to see the outcomes of the case at the end after viewing what really occurred. No regular cast, but great cast of actors you'll quickly recognize, who do an outstanding job (several Doctor Who's in here.) All said, you'll not want to binge these. Compulsive viewing it is though.
