Silk (Episode #4323H)

Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones star as two barristers facing off in the competition of their professional lives, the prestigious appointment as Queen's Counsel, while working high-stakes cases amidst the rivalry, tension, and intrigue on the front lines of criminal law.
This episode: "Innocent until proven guilty. Four words to live by" is just about all Martha Costello has to go on when she's handed two big cases with only one night to mount her defenses of an accused drug mule and aggravated burglar. All this, before she must defend an accused rapist, whose alleged victim is being defended by her ruthless rival, Clive Reader.
