What to expect

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 thrilling drama, Birkett takes on a case of murder, mayhem and political intrigue. Starring Neil Dudgeon as Birkett, with David Haig, Trystan Gravelle, Alison Pettitt, Michael Shelford, Clare Corbett, Sam Dale, Bruce Alexander and Joanna Monro. Other parts were played by John Biggins and Nigel Hastings. Directed by Marc Beeby.Written by Caroline and David Stafford.
