In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecution Service who prosecute the offenders.The first of the 13 episodes will be shown on 23 February. More videos and information can be found at the ITV Law & Order website.
Bradley Walsh is DS Ronnie Brooks, a real East End, copper’s copper, friend and partner to the charming DS Matt Devlin (Jamie Bamber) whose approach to policing is part seduction part force. Both report to DI Natalie Chandler (Harriet Walter) a working mum who would back them to the end.
Meanwhile, the CPS team comprises Ben Daniels as dedicated Senior Crown Prosecutor James Steel, a man on a mission for justice, Freema Agyeman as the hard-working and strong-willed young prosecutor Alesha Phillips, and Bill Paterson as their respected boss CPS director George Castle, a man trying to balance his ideals with the bigger picture. Together they represent a formidable team.
