Defending The Guilty (2018)
Monday 21st October 2019
Starring BAFTA winner Katherine Parkinson (IT Crowd, Humans) and Will Sharpe (Flowers), and written by Kieron Quirke (Cuckoo), idealistic pupil barrister Will Packham is shown the ropes by his cynical, worldly-wise pupilmaster Caroline, in Defending The Guilty, released on DVD 28th October 2019 from BBC Worldwide.
Will wants to be a barrister. But so do his fellow trainees: posh moral vacuum Liam, angry class warrior Danielle, and superbrain oddball Pia. And there's only room in chambers for one of them.
Will's boss Caroline is a cold-blooded winner in a wig. The komodo dragon of the courts. She believes a barrister should burn to win, and isn't too fussed about justice.
The problem with Will is, well, he's just a bit too Hufflepuff. For Will, law is about helping people in need. But the more he learns about criminal law, the less anything looks black and white.
In this competitive world of moral greys, can Will's idealism survive?
