Law & Order: UK

"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories."

Based on the wildly successful American show of the same name, Law & Order: UK follows a group of detectives and prosecutors as they work together to solve crimes and bring perpetrators to justice in London. Ronnie Brooks (Bradley Walsh) is a cop from the East End with a tough past and a big heart. His partner, Joe Hawkins (Ben Bailey Smith), is a young officer who has come straight from child protection to the murder squad. Their boss DI Wes Leyton (Paterson Joseph) has been through it all and knows the only way to change things is from the inside. On the side of the court is Crown Prosecutor Jacob Thorne (Dominic Rowan), a gifted and uncompromising criminal prosecutor. His second chair is defence barrister turned Crown Prosecutor Kate Barker (Georgia Taylor) who is fresh from the more lucrative side of the courtroom. With Henry Sharpe (Peter Davison) as their wise and pragmatic boss. The two teams encounter never-ending action in their quest to keep London safe.

Employing the original series' iconic two-part structure that focuses first on the investigation of a crime at the police level and then shifts in its second half to the prosecution of the suspects, Law & Order: UK approaches the format and characters from a uniquely English perspective. The episodes are based on scripts and episodes of the parent series.

Should return to the roots of the original showRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

The strength of the original Law & Order (IMHO) was always that it explored issues of policing & legal matter -- like police survelliance, search & seizure; the ethics of certain tactics, etc. Read more

I have been a Law and Order fan for ages. Starting with the original US, later the UK version. The UK version was Oke, had their own style (the English way). Read more
