Wonderful series. Great for a Brit Binge viewing. Suspense, intrigue, and drama.

Perhaps not since Rumpole of the Bailey has there been such a remarkable and enjoyable British courtroom drama as SILK. Oh, and what devilish machinations go on in chambers. Better not to say any more (so as not to give anything away and spoil the joy of watching and discovering) except that the cast is brilliant, the writing is excellent and the series is absolutely outstanding.

Compulsive binge viewing. Two of my favourite actors - the take-no-prisoners Maxine Peake and the delectable but ever so slimy Rupert!

Brilliantly acted, complex characters and storylines, unlike the formulaic stuff that so often permeates U.S. T.V. This series came highly recommended by an Australian barrister and he was absolutely correct about the quality of this show.

Excellent series previously seen on Masterpiece PBS. After many years & explanations of the Brit system of justice I still don't understand much of how it works.

I am not usually a big fan of courtroom dramas but I thought I would give Silk a look because it was produced by the BBC. Much to my surprise I was completely captivated by the story and the fascinating, sometimes ruthless cast of characters. I give it five stars because it is a great drama with well-developed characters and terrific acting. I hope the BBC releases series two and three for North America as it is currently only available in UK format for zone two DVD players.
