The casebook of Norman Birkett KC (1883-1962) covers pretty much every story that entertained the readers of News of the World between the wars. Birkett was a busy man who, in those days before legal specialisation, could at any one time be dealing simultaneously with a juicy murder, a society divorce or a livid libel action. In this episode, the celebrated advocate deals with a case of murder, pacifism and chocolate. Starring Neil Dudgeon as Birkett, with Bonnie Engstrom, Alun Raglan, Nicholas Jones, James Lailey Cox, Adam Billington, Gerard McDermott, Francine Chamberlain, Christopher Webster and Simon Bubb.
