Garrow’s Law, Series 3 is now available on DVD. Andrew Buchan stars as virtuous barrister William Garrow, a man unafraid to confront the injustices of the 18th century English legal system
At the Old Bailey, William Garrow continues to fight for prisoners’ rights, an uphill battle in 18th-century England. The French Revolution has made the state more determined than ever to hold on to power, and Garrowâ€™s own circumstances are dire. Now living with Lady Sarah Hill (Lyndsey Marshal), he is impoverished and ostracized by his peers. Separated from her husband, the vengeful MP Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves), Lady Sarah has no rights in the eyes of the law. On top of it all, Garrow’s mentor and friend, John Southouse (Alun Armstrong,), takes ill.
The cases Garrow takes are especially risky. Defending a would-be assassin of King George III, he challenges the legal definition of madness. He also exposes weavers’ horrible working conditions and puts British colonial governance on trial. Meanwhile, a proposition tests Garrow’s professional integrityâ€”but could give Lady Sarah what she desperately desires.
