The casebook of Norman Birkett KC (1883-1962) covers pretty much every story that entertained the readers of News of the World between the wars.

Birkett was a busy man who, in those days before legal specialisation, could at any one time be dealing simultaneously with a juicy murder, a society divorce or a livid libel action.

In this episode, a blind WW1 veteran, accused of murdering his wife, is defended by the celebrated advocate.

Starring Neil Dudgeon as Birkett, with Bonnie Engstrom, Alun Raglan, Adjoa Andoh, Carl Prekopp, Paul Moriarty, Adam Billington, James Lailey, Gerard McDermott, Rikki Lawton, Alex Rivers and Victoria Inez Hardy.

Written by Caroline and David Stafford.
