Rich in period atmosphere and excellent performances, the gripping BBC courtroom drama Garrow’s Law, Series 2 debuts on DVD from Acorn Media on August 2, 2011. Broadcast on BBC in 2010, the second series of this award-winning series follows upright, fiery barrister William Garrow (Andrew Buchan, Cranford, The Fixer) as he battles the injustices of the 18th century English legal system. Winner of a Royal Television Society award for best history program, the series features compelling plots, lavish sets and costumes, and an outstanding cast featuring Alun Armstrong (Little Dorrit, New Tricks), Rupert Graves (Sherlock, The Forsyte Saga, V for Vendetta) and Lyndsey Marshal (Rome, Being Human, The Hours). A favorite of critics and fans alike, Garrow’s Law first aired on BBC in 2009 and has since broadcast on PBS. A third season has recently been commissioned. The DVD 2-Disc set includes the four episodes of Series 2, a bonus 22-minute featurette on the real William Garrow, cast filmographies, and more (www.AcornOnline.com, $39.99).
In a time when prisoners in court have few rights, Garrow leads a legal revolution, coining the phrase “innocent until proven guilty” and defending the accused against the state. In return, he makes powerful enemies in politics and law. Chief among them is Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves), now assistant secretary to the admiralty. Jealous and vengeful, Hill believes that Garrow is involved with his wife, Lady Sarah (Lyndsey Marshal).
As Garrow tackles difficult and controversial cases, all drawn from the Old Bailey archives, Sir Arthur’s net tightens around him. Soon Garrow is on trial, charged with “criminal conversation”—18th-century code for adultery. Can his friend and mentor John Southouse (Alun Armstrong, Little Dorrit, New Tricks) save Garrow’s reputation and career?
BONUS FEATURES: William Garrow: Fact and Fiction featurette (22 min.), behind-the-scenes photo gallery, and cast filmographies
