This series features reconstructions of Marshall-Hall's dramatic courtroom displays and his ingenious and persuasive tactics. It also takes us back to the strange and often sinister stories behind the terrible crimes in question. The series is presented by barrister and writer John Mortimer QC (creator of Rumpole at the Bailey), while actor Tom Baker (one of the best of the early Dr Whos) brings to the role of Marshall Hall all the theatricality, humour and mercurial moodiness for which the great advocate was known.
Loved it. Have listened to it time and again.
Tom Baker as Marshall Hall is just perfect. John Mortimer's introductions really add something. Really, all of the characters are brilliant.
PLEASE .... Can we have more?
