Now being shown in the U.S. on BBC America, this series is the official British version of the "Law & Order" that was a staple on American television for two decades ... with the scripts adapted from those utilized by the NBC show.
Jamie Bamber ( "Battlestar Galactica") and Bradley Walsh play the police detective team whose cases are brought to trial by prosecutors portrayed by Ben Daniels and Freema Agyeman ( "Doctor Who"). Much as the original show featured New York locations extensively, this edition makes ample use of London and the surrounding area. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)
