Suddenly freed again after eight years inside, he uses his contacts to secure a position as an outdoor clerk with a top firm of City Solicitors.

The series was produced by McShane’s own production company, and was produced by McShane himself, under the guidance of executive producer Chris Parr. The series co-starred Joanna Kanska, Jayne Ashbourne, Matthew Marsh and Charles Gray.[2] Each episode shows the inefficiencies of the law, solves a new crime or helps those whom the law has neglected.
