Overview

The BBC period drama Garrow's Law originally ran on UK television from November 2009 through December 2011. Set in 18th Century England, it follows the experiences of William Garrow (Andrew Buchan), a tempestuous attorney trying various criminal cases of the day. Though the concepts of "innocent until proven guilty" and individual liberty are entirely novel at the time, Garrow coins both principles and helps to make them rote, often successfully defending the unjustly accused against the state. Unsurprisingly, this earns him numerous enemies in the fields of law and politics. His main nemesis, however, is Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves), who believes that Garrow is having an affair with his wife, Lady Sarah (Lyndsey Marshal). This comprehensive box set contains all three seasons of the program, each comprised of four individual episodes.

    What a brilliant, delightful, inspiring and entertaining piece!

    What a brilliant, delightful, inspiring and entertaining piece! This is based on a true story and legal cases from the late 1800’s ~ still very relevant to today.

    The young, barrister apprentice William Garrow decided to change the legal system from the corrupt entertainment spectacle to a system seeking the truth and justice.

    Often to appease the masses, poor innocent people were arrested with no counsel. People were paid off or made deals to give false testimony and/or evidence. This included judges, prosecutors, accusers and witnesses. As Mr. Garrow saw this while studying courtroom procedures, he was shocked and committed to see justice served. It also shows how Sarah Hill a woman who also wanted a healthy and just change, was limited by social standards, but did what she could to support and contribute to the historical shift in trials, the handling of evidence and the accused.

    The stories include court cases researched from the Old Bailey archives. The acting, directing, costuming and sets are great!

    Mr. Garrow is the barrister who changed the phrase from “guilty until proven innocent” ~ a hopeless possibility for most ~ to what is almost regularly used today, “innocent until proven guilty.”
