Law and Order: UK

I went to see a screening of Law and Order: UK at the NFT last night. The episode was followed by a really interesting Q&A panel with Dick Wolf and Chris Chibnall. It was so wonderful to watch the L&O formula applied to a British crime procedural. No killer cam, no landscape acting, no pissed off Mrs and a blistering pace that wasn’t going to slow down for anything so mundane as a back story. ITV is going to be really glad it commissioned this.

    I think the clue is in the name of the blog. I’m just not very fast writer and paid work has to come first.

    saw it too. excellent acting with barely a moment to draw breath. Both the police and prosecutor bits looked so good – high production stuff. Likely to start at the end of the month.

    Ben any idea why a 1st of a 20 episode series is being billed as 1/7?

  6. I know they’ve been commissioned for 13 Episodes (a long season in UK terms) why it’s listed as 1/7 is a mystery to me unless ITV are planning to broadcast them as two seasons of 7 and 6.
