A good series of competing lawyers handling prosecution and defense of criminal cases. Their skill is well demonstrated in the outcome. The series is spiced with office intrigues and personal lives.

Yes it’s a very good series, but for me the intrusive, annoying soundtrack often got in the way.

British courtroom romantic drama series. Good plot, good acting by an excellent cast. Some familiar faces in this series as well.

Perhaps not since Rumpole of the Bailey has there been such a remarkable and enjoyable British courtroom drama as SILK. Oh, and what devilish machinations go on in chambers. Better not to say any more (so as not to give anything away and spoil the joy of watching and discovering) except that the cast is brilliant, the writing is excellent and the series is absolutely outstanding.

Compulsive binge viewing. Two of my favourite actors - the take-no-prisoners Maxine Peake and the delectable but ever so slimy Rupert!
