It seems she works 16hours day.
Will she ever have private life?

Did not enjoy watching the hectic life of an Old Baily barrister. It seems she and the other lawyers are always in motion. What's the purpose, to get a silk gown?Of course, they have time for a occasional sex romp. Can't say I really like any of the characters.

As an old lawyer in me dotage: 1/ it's LA Law with AM soap thespians;2/ it's usa law not Rumpole...comtemp old bailey with these characters and plot is boring and criminal law in contemp England must pay well to afford their chambers...perhaps I would be more impressed if she represented some Jamaican, murderous drug thugs for money to pay for the digs.
3/ Lastly, soap knocked what does that add
