We're very excited. After years of overdosing on the American cop/detective/legal thriller franchises it looks like we're finally getting our own. Law and Order's crossing the pond.
Of course, we'd prefer CSI but beggars can't be choosers. We love The Bill but its East End beat patrol and trademark frontline grit put it at the other end of the entertainment scale to L&O which deals with the more cerebral end of arrest and trial, following procedure and fixing the criminal justice system. All slick suits and moral dilemmas rather than helmets and cups of tea.
We expect it's taken so long to get here because of the wigs. Not sexy, are they?
