We have known for some time that the second series of the BBC’s excellent drama Garrow’s Law was in in the pipeline, and now we know when it will begin being aired: Sunday 14 November 2010. We will be making a note to watch (or catch up via the iPlayer). The following is from the press-release:
Pioneering 18th-century barrister William Garrow revisits the Old Bailey to champion the rights of prisoners against the power of the State, as BBC One‘s acclaimed drama Garrow’s Law returns for a second series.
A year has passed since viewers last saw him and, in this time, Garrow’s reputation for pioneering advocacy has intensified – but so too has his opposition to the legal and political establishment.
A stellar cast returns for the second series of RTS (Royal Television Society) award-winning Garrow’s Law, lead by Andrew Buchan (Cranford, Party Animals), Alun Armstrong (New tricks, Little Dorrit), Lyndsey Marshal (Being Human, Rome), Aidan McArdle (Beautiful People, Jane Eyre) and Rupert Graves (Single Father, God On Trial).
Themes of slavery, homosexuality, mistreatment of disabled naval veterans and women as property are explored in this new series. And Garrow finds himself in the dock at Westminster Hall as the series comes to a thrilling climax.
