DISTANT POLICE SIREN

0:00:230:00:25

Taxi!

0:00:300:00:32

Can you take me here, please?

0:00:360:00:38

Right, Charles, sorry about that. OK, let me fill you in on where we are.

0:00:430:00:46

We had the cocaine in a holdall.

0:00:460:00:48

We moved into the car park where we saw our friend Mr Scott walking out

0:00:480:00:52

from behind his van holding a double-barrelled shotgun.

0:00:520:00:56

OK, listen, see you in about an hour.

0:00:570:00:59

OK. OK, bye.

0:00:590:01:01

CLICK Sorry about that. I'm a lawyer.

0:01:020:01:04

CLICK

0:01:050:01:07

CLICK Honestly.

0:01:070:01:09

CAR HORN SOUNDS

0:01:090:01:12

Jamie's dad, Mr Burton,

0:01:130:01:15

has come in today to talk about what he does at work.

0:01:150:01:17

Hi. Do any of you know what a barrister does? Yes, Jamie?

0:01:170:01:21

He stops people from going to prison. And how does he do that?

0:01:210:01:24

He tells a court that someone didn't do a crime.

0:01:240:01:27

And sometimes the evidence doesn't cut it.

0:01:270:01:30

And sometimes that means he can't come on holiday like he promised.

0:01:300:01:33

Actually, my job is mostly standing up and talking to a judge in court.

0:01:330:01:38

What do you talk about? If someone said they saw you take your classmate's pen,

0:01:380:01:42

and you said you didn't, my job would be to show that whoever saw you was mistaken.

0:01:420:01:47

What happens if I did take the pen anyway? Well, then you'd be guilty.

0:01:470:01:50

Yeah, but what if I said I didn't take it, and the person who saw me has bad eyesight,

0:01:500:01:55

and you're so good at arguing they can't be sure it was me who took it?

0:01:550:01:59

Ah! Well, then, that's what you call a reasonable doubt.

0:01:590:02:02

So I get to keep the pen? Yes, but then you'd be getting away with it.

0:02:020:02:06

Only if your dad was on my side.

0:02:060:02:08

KANGO DRILL VIBRATES

0:02:320:02:34

Hi, Charles. Will. Are we ready?

0:02:380:02:41

Crown called. Seems Maggie Gardner's stepping in as lead junior. Again?

0:02:410:02:45

Surprised she could squeeze in a case between TV appearances. Suppose I'm flattered.

0:02:450:02:50

It's like a derby match with you. They should sell tickets.

0:02:500:02:53

It was the only object Mr Kumarin had to hand.

0:02:530:02:55

A hunting knife is not a defensive weapon! The clue is in the name.

0:02:550:02:59

Miss Gardner. I apologise, My Lord. A man about to be attacked does not have to wait for permission.

0:02:590:03:04

The law tells us, in the right circumstances, a pre-emptive strike is justified.

0:03:040:03:09

In this case, a loaded shotgun aimed squarely at his head!

0:03:090:03:12

We only have Mr Scott's appalling aim to thank that Mr Kumarin is here

0:03:120:03:16

and not being scraped off the nightclub wall with a trowel.

0:03:160:03:19

Well done, Will.

0:03:210:03:23

RUSSIAN ACCENT: Mr Will, thank you very much.

0:03:240:03:26

Pleasure. Thank you. Take care.

MAN WHISTLES TV: "Police continue to make headway

0:04:160:04:19

in their investigation into the brutal murder of Sandra Mullen,

0:04:190:04:23

acting on new evidence that has come to light in the past few days.

0:04:230:04:26

Detectives are still calling for witnesses to come forward with any additional information

0:04:260:04:31

they may have concerning the ritualistic slaying of Miss Mullen,

0:04:310:04:35

whose tortured body was found on heathland by a dog walker last October.

0:04:350:04:39

Miss Mullen, who was 25 at the time of her death and studying to be a doctor,

0:04:390:04:44

was last seen leaving a night club in the early hours of Thursday morning."

0:04:440:04:48

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:04:480:04:50

No, thank you, we have insulation!

0:04:520:04:54

We have a warrant to conduct a search of these premises!

0:04:550:04:58

Come back after breakfast!

0:04:590:05:02

Mr Foyle!

0:05:020:05:04

After breakfast!!

0:05:040:05:06

LOUD METALLIC THUD

0:05:080:05:10

FOOTSTEPS

0:05:110:05:13

Well-played. Thank you. How's life? Ah, pleasure and pain.

0:05:220:05:26

Oh, Kate saw you on Loose Women the other day.

0:05:260:05:28

You're playing it very cool. Cool?

0:05:310:05:33

This... This whole Top 40 nonsense.

0:05:330:05:35

What are you talking about? You haven't heard?

0:05:360:05:39

Oh, false modesty!

0:05:420:05:44

It's so unappealing, Will.

0:05:440:05:46

HE LAUGHS

0:05:460:05:48

I don't know what you're talking about.

0:05:490:05:51

We've never had a number one. Congratulations. Ah. You'd heard already?

0:05:570:06:02

Er, no, but that explains the warm welcome outside the robing room.

0:06:020:06:06

I don't think it's limited to there. Well done, Mr Burton. That's silk now for you, surely?

0:06:060:06:11

If you say so, Mr Monk. You fill out the application, I'll buy a stamp. How's that?

0:06:110:06:16

(Don't do this to me!) You should consider it.

0:06:160:06:19

Don't stay a junior all your life, hm?

0:06:190:06:21

Well, Harris can, but that's red brick education for you.

0:06:230:06:26

I like getting my hands dirty. Ah, but you're different, Will. So very... special.

0:06:260:06:31

Bonus prize. No, we're actually up to the cottage for the weekend. Read that, will you?

0:06:440:06:49

Knowing you it shouldn't take long. We're out of mobile range. Very unfortunate. Tragic, in fact.

0:06:490:06:54

Simkins Brown asked for you. Personally.

0:06:540:06:57

Really? Although I'd keep that particular factoid to yourself if I were you.

0:06:570:07:02

They asked for you over any of the silks. Can't say I blame them.

0:07:020:07:05

If I was in their client's shoes, I'd want your record on my side.

0:07:050:07:09

If you're chained up in a safe at the bottom of a shark tank, you don't call for Paul Daniels.

0:07:090:07:14

You call for Houdini.

0:07:150:07:17

Oh!

0:07:180:07:20

HE EXHALES

0:07:260:07:28

HE BLOWS WHISTLE Come on.

0:07:280:07:31

Nice one. Good pass. Good pass! Come on!

0:07:310:07:34

There we go, now we're talking.

0:07:350:07:37

Come on. Keep an eye on the ball!

0:07:370:07:40

Here we... WHISTLE BLOWS Oh, come on, referee!

0:07:400:07:44

Grow a sac, for God's sake!

0:07:440:07:46

Potatoes, she means sack of potatoes. You're here!

0:07:460:07:49

Oh, mwah!

0:07:500:07:52

Oh, God... Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!

0:07:530:07:55

Oh, wee man. CROWD APPLAUDS

0:07:570:07:59

I found an apple in my jacket this morning.

0:08:040:08:07

I was sending you a message - through the medium of fruit.

0:08:070:08:10

The message being? Eat fruit. You don't think I'm getting my five a day? No.

0:08:100:08:15

I don't think you're eating anything that isn't made from cheese.

0:08:150:08:18

BEEPS

0:08:190:08:21

SHE WHISTLES

0:08:280:08:30

I think you'll find you have to press the button first.

0:08:340:08:37

I did press it. I used a pressing motion.

0:08:370:08:40

BEEPS There now.

0:08:410:08:43

WATER RUNS I just did that. OK.

0:08:440:08:47

Thanks for your support. Really appreciate it.

0:08:490:08:52

Come on, we're going.

0:08:530:08:56

Yeah.

0:08:590:09:01

Hang on.

0:09:030:09:04

Get your bags off the back seat. OK?

0:09:170:09:19

Hey, Ben. All right.

0:09:200:09:22

Hi. DOG BARKS

0:09:220:09:25

SOFT MUSIC ON RADIO

0:09:580:10:00

You're the Pied Piper of bubble baths.

0:10:070:10:10

SHE LAUGHS

0:10:100:10:12

You know, there might be room in here for a large Scotsman.

0:10:120:10:15

I've got to catch up on something. Oh, well, suit yourself.

0:10:150:10:18

It's all candles and twilight in here though.

0:10:190:10:22

Your loss.

0:10:230:10:25

HE SIGHS

0:10:250:10:27

SHE SNORES

0:10:330:10:35

SHE SNORTS

0:10:380:10:40

Stop snoring.

0:10:410:10:43

Sorry, am I keeping you up? SHE LAUGHS

0:10:430:10:46

Funny guy. Hmm...

0:10:460:10:49

You were quite the hit at school yesterday. So Jamie said.

0:10:520:10:55

They seemed to enjoy it.

0:10:560:10:59

All his wee pals want you to be their lawyer now.

0:10:590:11:01

They're all going to go out and commit GBH safe in the knowledge you'll get them off.

0:11:010:11:06

Well, that's very reassuring.

0:11:060:11:08

Little do they know that that large brain of yours is full of holes.

0:11:110:11:14

Your hard drive's full.

0:11:140:11:17

That's your problem. I see.

0:11:190:11:21

You just need to back it up now and again.

0:11:230:11:25

How do I do that?

0:11:270:11:29

Well...

0:11:290:11:31

Mmm. You're so nice and warm.

0:11:420:11:45

SUSPENSE MUSIC

0:12:070:12:09

Mr Simkins, why did you choose me to lead this?

0:12:260:12:29

I mean, why me, over a silk? Because I've seen too many silks who try and

0:12:290:12:34

waltz in and blunderbuss their way through a case they've only glanced at on the way to the court.

0:12:340:12:39

Because in a case like this I want someone

0:12:390:12:43

who spends days elbows deep in the evidence.

0:12:430:12:46

Because my client stands between a rock and a bucket of shit

0:12:460:12:51

and he needs all the help he can get.

0:12:510:12:53

And?

0:12:570:12:59

Honestly? Yeah.

0:12:590:13:02

Hmph. Because you win.

0:13:020:13:04

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:13:210:13:23

Are you sleeping here now, Mr Burton?

0:13:260:13:28

What time is it? Tuesday.

0:13:280:13:30

I think I fancy Carlos Tevez.

0:13:320:13:34

For captain.

0:13:350:13:38

Did you look at these pictures?

0:13:410:13:44

You ever seen anything like it?

0:13:450:13:47

Before?

0:13:470:13:49

I've never.

0:13:490:13:51

She was alive for most of it, you know?

0:13:540:13:56

She was alive.

0:13:580:14:00

HE EXHALES

0:14:010:14:03

"We were walking through the park, listening to music on our iPod.

0:14:250:14:28

We did not notice the blood on our shoes until we got home.

0:14:280:14:31

Because we'd not been paying much attention to where we'd been walking,

0:14:310:14:35

and our walk had taken us through areas of deeper undergrowth and high grasses.

0:14:350:14:39

When we first saw the blood we presumed we had stepped in the remains of an animal."

0:14:390:14:44

A squirrel, for example? Yes.

0:14:440:14:46

Did you know the grey squirrels are killing all the red squirrels?

0:14:470:14:52

I did, yes. But now they've discovered a black squirrel.

0:14:520:14:55

Mr Foyle. And that's killing all the greys.

0:14:550:14:57

Goes to show, you can't be too careful.

0:14:590:15:01

Mr Foyle. Can we please get on?

0:15:010:15:03

What day do you take your laundry to be service washed, Mr Foyle?

0:15:050:15:08

Tuesday's wash day. Can you explain why, after months of Tuesdays,

0:15:080:15:13

you took your washing in on a Monday?

0:15:130:15:15

We'd run out of pants, hadn't we? We took our laundry to be washed a day early

0:15:160:15:20

because we'd run out of clothing. Correct. The fact we found blood on our shoes after our walk

0:15:200:15:25

increased our desire to do our washing early. That's the truth.

0:15:250:15:29

Do you normally wash your shoes in the washing machine? I do if they have blood on them.

0:15:290:15:33

Right.

0:15:360:15:38

Erm... We're going to have to talk about the websites.

0:15:390:15:42

The other side are going to try to claim you habitually view images and video

0:15:420:15:46

that are commonly referred to as "extreme pornography", an umbrella term for filmed acts

0:15:460:15:53

which threaten, or appear to threaten, a person's life,

0:15:530:15:56

result in serious injury to participants

0:15:560:15:58

or appear to involve torture, biting,

0:15:580:16:01

sexual interference with a human corpse.

0:16:020:16:04

And that this has a link to the nature of the injuries

0:16:050:16:08

sustained by the victim.

0:16:080:16:11

I don't do that kind of thing.

0:16:110:16:13

Unfortunately, your credit card statements tell a different story.

0:16:130:16:17

They show payments to a number of websites, which have been revealed

0:16:170:16:21

to distribute this... this kind of material.

0:16:210:16:24

The credit cards are lying.

0:16:250:16:27

Erm...

0:16:290:16:31

Right. HE SNIFFS

0:16:320:16:34

I have to tell you, Mr Foyle, already this is a huge challenge.

0:16:340:16:38

We're going to have to work on your presentation style.

0:16:380:16:41

What you see is what you get.

0:16:410:16:43

Yes, well, that's part of the problem, isn't it?

0:16:430:16:46

Does he have to be here? Yes, he does. Yeah.

0:16:520:16:55

Here's the thing, Mr Burton,

0:16:570:17:00

and I don't know whether you've picked it up

0:17:000:17:03

or perhaps your sixth sense might have spotted it.

0:17:030:17:06

I don't like people very much.

0:17:070:17:09

I'm just not a very nice person.

0:17:110:17:13

I'm not here to judge you. No, the man in red does that.

0:17:150:17:18

I'm here to defend you and present your case as best as I can.

0:17:180:17:21

In order to do that... You think I did it, don't you? That's the problem. It's not what I was saying.

0:17:210:17:26

You think I did all those awful things to that poor woman. Listen to me. I don't think I will.

0:17:260:17:31

Mr Foyle.

0:17:310:17:33

I want him gone.

0:17:340:17:36

He's your solicitor.

0:17:370:17:39

Gone.

0:17:390:17:41

DOOR SHUTS He was making me nervous.

0:17:560:17:59

Do you want to take a minute?

0:17:590:18:01

Staring at me.

0:18:030:18:05

Mr Foyle. Look me in the eye.

0:18:070:18:09

Shall we get on?

0:18:160:18:18

How about a nice cup of tea?

0:18:200:18:22

Mr Foyle, I'm your defence barrister.

0:18:240:18:27

If you privately confessed your guilt to me in any way but publicly maintained your innocence,

0:18:270:18:32

I'd be following Mr Simkins there, and I would have encouraged you as I left to enter a guilty plea.

0:18:320:18:37

I'm not guilty.

0:18:370:18:39

Then this is where we are.

0:18:410:18:43

Well, good job you're here then. Refreshing. Let's hope so.

0:18:430:18:47

Your manners.

0:18:470:18:49

Full? Just a splash.

0:18:520:18:53

You know, it's funny.

0:19:020:19:04

The more time we spend together,

0:19:040:19:06

the more you remind me of me.

0:19:070:19:09

Right.

0:19:130:19:15

Mr Burton? Give me a minute. Are you all right? I just need some air.

0:19:170:19:22

Can I have 20 Marlboro Lights, please? Yep.

0:19:390:19:43

And a lighter if you have got one. Sure.

0:19:430:19:46

Ah, here she is, the rising star at 57 Harlow Street.

0:20:120:20:15

Now then, Maggie, I know I should really be rooting for you

0:20:160:20:19

without exception, but you should know there is no ignominy in coming second. Just ask Buzz Aldrin.

0:20:190:20:25

Well, I demand a recount. Takes me back to Middle Temple Moot Finals. Really?

0:20:250:20:29

Yeah, you and me. Almost an exact replay.

0:20:290:20:32

It was a long time ago. I heard you're up against our boy Julian on this Liam Foyle malarkey.

0:20:350:20:40

Is that so? Our boy? Yes. Surprised it's not you on the other side. Seem to be making a habit out of it.

0:20:400:20:46

Thought I'd give you a go against someone else for a change. Had enough, eh? Never.

0:20:460:20:51

I am just thinking of transitioning into more defence work.

0:20:510:20:54

Excuse me. Sure.

0:20:540:20:56

Anyway, this Foyle case is a little too St Jude for my liking.

0:21:010:21:04

He's the patron saint of lost causes. Oh, I didn't know that.

0:21:060:21:10

Right, well, I'll go and get us some more rubbing alcohol. Great, thank you.

0:21:110:21:15

I'm serious. I've seen the brief. Why are you doing? I'm practising law.

0:21:180:21:22

Oh, come on. It's almost a no-questions jobbie.

0:21:220:21:25

It might be exposure but for all the wrong reasons.

0:21:250:21:28

I don't do things for exposure, Maggie. Why do you do it?

0:21:280:21:31

Because everyone deserves a defence.

0:21:330:21:35

There you go.

0:21:420:21:44

Yeah! THEY WHOOP AND CHEER

0:21:440:21:46

Make a wish. I wish my mum would stop annoying me. Yes. MOBILE PHONE RINGS

0:21:480:21:52

Who wants a piece of cake? ALL: Me!

0:21:520:21:54

Are you sure? ALL: Yes!

0:21:550:21:57

OK, so you're saying there's more to find?

0:22:000:22:02

Yeah. And would you go on record with that?

0:22:040:22:06

Great. Great, OK. Someone from my office will call you tomorrow

0:22:090:22:12

and set up an appointment.

0:22:120:22:14

Thanks. Thank you. Speak soon. Bye-bye.

0:22:140:22:17

Who was that? That's a clever man who knows about computers.

0:22:180:22:22

Is he going to back up your brain?

0:22:220:22:25

No, it was for my work. Will he help you win the case? I hope so.

0:22:250:22:29

Yeah. Mmm...

0:22:310:22:33

Oh, here they come.

How's Kate and the family? Very well, thank you.

0:23:560:23:59

I think Maggie's in the gallery today.

0:23:590:24:01

Why's she doing that? Checking out the competition I expect.

0:24:020:24:05

That's the trouble with being number one.

0:24:050:24:08

Everyone wants to knock you off your perch.

0:24:080:24:10

Now I heard you asked for an adjournment last week.

0:24:100:24:15

I did indeed. Trouble at t'mill?

0:24:150:24:18

Not really. Just needed more time. Well, here we are, I'm afraid.

0:24:180:24:22

Here we are indeed.

0:24:220:24:24

I must say, I do like your game face, old boy. You haven't seen it yet, old boy.

0:24:260:24:30

Some crimes defy description.

0:24:330:24:35

They debase our so-called civilisation

0:24:360:24:39

and defy every boundary of humanity left to us.

0:24:390:24:43

Now the person who took the life of Sandra Mullins

0:24:430:24:46

can only be described as a malignant sadist,

0:24:460:24:50

who did so with the intent to traumatise, to terrorise,

0:24:500:24:54

and to inflict the maximum amount of pain and suffering.

0:24:540:24:58

And we intend to prove, without doubt,

0:24:590:25:01

that that person was Liam Foyle.

0:25:010:25:03

Severe bruising around her neck,

0:25:050:25:07

her thyroid cartilage and hyoid bone were badly fractured.

0:25:070:25:11

Cause of death was strangulation.

0:25:120:25:14

Other injuries were sexual in nature,

0:25:150:25:17

internal and external,

0:25:180:25:20

both eyes were missing,

0:25:220:25:24

removed with force close to the time of death, possibly before.

0:25:240:25:28

The park gets overgrown towards the north eastern corner.

0:25:300:25:33

Long grass, hawthorn, lavender, nettle beds.

0:25:330:25:35

And did you see anything unusual on your morning route? I saw a man.

0:25:360:25:40

Getting up from a lying position.

0:25:400:25:42

Mr Hughes, in your professional capacity,

0:25:420:25:45

can you please confirm the credit card statements before you are

0:25:450:25:48

an accurate reflection of payments made by your bank on behalf of

0:25:480:25:52

the account holder, Mr Liam Foyle? Yes.

0:25:520:25:55

And these payments were made by the card over the first three months

0:25:550:25:59

of this year, is that correct? Yes.

0:25:590:26:01

And they were all made online to companies across Asia and Europe,

0:26:010:26:06

all of which distribute and produce the same... product,

0:26:060:26:10

namely pornography, is that correct?

0:26:110:26:14

Yes, that is our understanding.

0:26:140:26:17

Mr Hughes, many of these sites, and I'm afraid we have had to visit

0:26:170:26:21

them in the course of this investigation,

0:26:210:26:23

have shown acts of extreme depravity which,

0:26:230:26:26

we understand from the forensic reports,

0:26:260:26:28

show disturbingly accurate similarities to the injuries

0:26:280:26:31

that befell Sandra Mullins before she was murdered.

0:26:310:26:35

I talk specifically in relation to the bite marks

0:26:350:26:38

and the mutilation of genitalia. Liar!

0:26:380:26:42

Mr Foyle! You have one chance with me, and that was it.

0:26:420:26:47

Any more from you and I shall hold you in contempt.

0:26:470:26:50

Murderer! Silence, please!

0:26:500:26:52

Mr Hughes, please answer the question.

0:26:580:27:00

Yes, it is the same card.

0:27:010:27:03

Thank you. No further questions, My Lord.

0:27:030:27:05

Mr Burton?

0:27:070:27:09

My Lord, before this trial began I made a written application for an adjournment.

0:27:160:27:20

I'm asking you now to reconsider that application in the light of the gravity of the expert testimony.

0:27:200:27:25

(Oh, come on.) This is most inappropriate.

0:27:250:27:28

An adjournment will bring vital evidence to light.

0:27:280:27:31

Let both sides have their expert, and let the jury decide. Mr Burton,

0:27:310:27:35

there is huge public interest in having this case heard as soon as possible.

0:27:350:27:39

The fact your expert has not mustered himself to the task at hand is neither here nor there.

0:27:390:27:44

He's not slow, he's gathering potentially new evidence.

0:27:440:27:47

It's the same computer.

0:27:470:27:49

Both of your experts are computer forensic specialists.

0:27:490:27:53

I can hardly see how two trained men looking at the same equipment

0:27:530:27:56

could produce so radically different conclusions

0:27:560:27:59

that it would make a difference. I'm afraid it simply isn't on.

0:27:590:28:03

I think if My Lord could look a little closer...

0:28:050:28:08

Your application was refused and it shall stay refused.

0:28:080:28:11

I will decline from pursuing you on contempt

0:28:130:28:16

but let this be your last and final warning.

0:28:160:28:19

We'll break for lunch now - but the train is on the tracks, Mr Burton.

0:28:190:28:26

And for the sake of your client I suggest you deal with it.

0:28:270:28:30

My Lord. All rise. (Choo-choo.)

0:28:300:28:33

Will?

0:29:050:29:07

You should try and sleep. I'm fine. I mean it.

0:29:180:29:21

You think you're invincible, and you're not.

0:29:220:29:25

We should get new locks on these windows. Were you even listening to me? Frame locks, with keys.

0:29:250:29:30

Oh, God. You're going to drive me crazy

0:29:300:29:33

for the next two months now, aren't you?

0:29:330:29:36

A colleague of mine just defended a 12-year-old boy who poured

0:29:360:29:40

drain cleaner down the throat of his best mate

0:29:400:29:42

because he wouldn't let him play a game on his phone.

0:29:420:29:45

The world is broken.

0:29:540:29:56

You shouldn't watch scary movies so close to bedtime.

0:29:590:30:02

Yeah.

POLICE SIREN CROWD JEERS

0:30:420:30:43

Not inspiring much confidence up there, Will.

0:30:430:30:46

I know what I'm doing, Mr Foyle. Not from where I'm sitting.

0:30:470:30:51

So sack me. Why would I want to do that?

0:30:510:30:54

You tell me. I work for you as long as you'll have me.

0:30:540:30:57

I apologise, Will. I know you've got my back.

0:31:010:31:05

I appreciate your honesty very much.

0:31:050:31:07

Shall we get on?

0:31:090:31:11

You only have one computer, is that correct? Yes.

0:31:110:31:14

But I don't see what that's got to do with what happened to that woman.

0:31:140:31:18

You will.

0:31:180:31:20

Someone must pay for what happened to Sandra Mullins.

0:31:220:31:26

Our very humanity is at stake, as my learned friend has indicated.

0:31:270:31:31

It would be convenient for everyone here today

0:31:320:31:37

if Liam Foyle was guilty.

0:31:370:31:39

The cuffs go on and he's gone forever.

0:31:400:31:44

The evidence seems overwhelming.

0:31:440:31:46

But it is not.

0:31:470:31:49

We may dislike Mr Foyle.

0:31:510:31:53

We might cross the street if we saw him coming.

0:31:540:31:56

But we do not have to like him to defend him.

0:31:580:32:01

Because this is not a popularity contest, this is not a witch-hunt,

0:32:010:32:04

this is a court of law,

0:32:060:32:09

and in this country, when you're accused of a crime

0:32:090:32:12

you are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty.

0:32:120:32:17

And make no mistake, not a shred of what you've heard from

0:32:170:32:20

my learned friend acting for the Prosecution

0:32:200:32:23

has given any proof at all.

0:32:230:32:25

I will show you unreliable witnesses,

0:32:250:32:27

lazy forensic science,

0:32:280:32:30

emotional appeals instead of factual accuracies.

0:32:300:32:33

Oh, yes, and the casual assertion that my client is

0:32:350:32:39

a consumer of extreme pornography.

0:32:390:32:41

First, I think, we will talk about that.

0:32:430:32:45

I am an expert in forensic computer data analysis.

0:32:460:32:49

Dr Crowe, have you had a chance to examine the hard drive of

0:32:490:32:52

the computer belonging to Mr Foyle? Yes, I have.

0:32:520:32:56

And you did this instructed by the Prosecution in this case, is that correct? Yes.

0:32:560:33:00

Unfortunately Dr Weeks, the gentleman who has helped examine the computer for the Defence

0:33:000:33:05

has not yet finished his work.

0:33:050:33:08

However, he has passed me his notes to date and I'd like to ask you questions about them.

0:33:080:33:13

Wherever you go on the internet, using a computer,

0:33:130:33:17

you leave footprints. Is that correct? Yes, it is.

0:33:170:33:20

Even if you've deleted a file, someone like you is able to see it.

0:33:200:33:24

Most of the time. Where is this going? In the absence of my own expert,

0:33:240:33:28

my learned friend has kindly tendered the Prosecution expert on this matter.

0:33:280:33:32

I beg some time to explore this point with him.

0:33:320:33:34

Very well.

0:33:370:33:39

My learned friend alleges that my client paid for and viewed,

0:33:400:33:45

on a regular basis,

0:33:450:33:47

numerous depraved and abusive images, including...

0:33:470:33:51

"acts of torture, mutilation, strangulation, and necrophilia."

0:33:520:33:57

Um, in your analysis of his computer,

0:33:580:34:01

did you establish that Mr Foyle

0:34:010:34:03

had actually visited ANY of those websites that

0:34:030:34:06

pertained to those images? No, but his credit card bills... Thank you.

0:34:060:34:10

And my learned friend asserted that my client paid for access

0:34:100:34:14

to many of those websites with his credit card.

0:34:140:34:16

Now,

0:34:190:34:20

why would he pay for them if he didn't actually visit them?

0:34:200:34:24

It may sound reprehensible but he's not getting his money's worth, is he?

0:34:260:34:30

How did he pay for access to those sites without actually visiting them?

0:34:300:34:34

Many porn sites were on his internet history

0:34:340:34:36

to which he submitted his credit card details.

0:34:360:34:39

That's how he received a password to unlock other content elsewhere.

0:34:390:34:43

Is it possible that his card details were falsified at that point?

0:34:440:34:49

How do you mean? That when he submitted his details to the adult site,

0:34:500:34:55

they were taken and used by unknown third parties

0:34:550:35:00

to pay for and unlock this "other content" as you call it.

0:35:000:35:04

Is that possible? I suppose so, yes.

0:35:040:35:07

So given this possibility, if we were to prove, in this court,

0:35:070:35:11

that such falsification occurred, would Mr Foyle be shown to be,

0:35:110:35:14

in fact, a victim of identity fraud?

0:35:140:35:16

This is not a trial about extreme pornography,

0:35:160:35:19

this is about the horrific murder... Our expert was in the process of proving this link.

0:35:190:35:24

Hence our application for an adjournment, which was refused.

0:35:240:35:27

My learned friend brought these hideous allegations to bear on this case and I reiterate my request.

0:35:270:35:33

The expert testimony cuts both ways.

0:35:330:35:36

Usher, please excuse the jury.

0:35:430:35:45

A matter of procedure has just arisen,

0:35:470:35:50

I need to talk to both sides about it.

0:35:500:35:52

We will call you back presently.

0:35:520:35:54

My room, I think.

0:35:560:35:58

COURTROOM MURMURS

0:35:580:36:00

My client has been falsely branded an extreme porn enthusiast by the Crown,

0:36:110:36:15

this has now leaked online to social media, where it's been duly picked up by the print media,

0:36:150:36:20

which has now tainted my client with the label torturer, pervert, necrophiliac,

0:36:200:36:25

so much so this jury must be discharged and a new jury called. Even with the reporting restrictions,

0:36:250:36:30

given the press this case has already generated, Mr Foyle cannot be given a fair trial.

0:36:300:36:35

The application is to stay the indictment. This is absurd. I made the request in good time.

0:36:350:36:40

Yes, I know. The prejudice to the accused

0:36:400:36:42

in the eyes of this jury is, in my view, permanent.

0:36:420:36:45

Reluctantly, I feel that I have little option in these circumstances

0:36:470:36:51

but to accede to your application. Judge, please.

0:36:510:36:54

I ballsed up, Julian.

0:36:540:36:56

I'm sorry. Let's get this over with.

0:36:570:37:01

And so, as a result, I have no alternative

0:37:020:37:07

but to discharge the jury and release the defendant.

0:37:070:37:10

Congratulations, well done. It was a mistake.

0:37:480:37:51

I just made sure they paid for it. Will, good man.

0:37:510:37:54

Just doing my job. Thank you, my friend.

0:37:540:37:57

Pleasure. Take care.

0:38:000:38:02

So show me again. You do it. OK. But don't watch me, I can't do it if you watch. I'm like a kettle.

0:44:260:44:28

Is it possible that one of your ex-clients has a point to prove?

0:44:490:44:54

Someone you failed to defend, perhaps did some time?

0:44:540:44:57

Well,... no.

0:44:570:44:59

You sound very sure. Detective Chalmers, Mr Burton has never lost a case.

0:45:000:45:05

Have you ever refused to represent someone?

0:45:050:45:08

We're not really allowed to do that. Allowed?

0:45:080:45:11

Cherry-picking is frowned upon.

0:45:570:45:59

Aye-aye.

0:46:010:46:03

Hi. Any sign of a reply from the QC Selection Panel?

0:46:030:46:06

Yeah. Look, about that.

0:46:060:46:09

You might want to delay a little.

0:46:090:46:11

What kind of complaint? Unprofessional conduct.

0:46:140:46:16

He didn't come to us first? Looks like he wanted to cause you maximum discomfort.

0:46:160:46:21

Went straight to the Legal Ombudsman and the BSB. Both barrels.

0:46:210:46:25

Mr Foyle asserts that you "engaged in conduct which is dishonest

0:46:250:46:30

or otherwise discreditable to a barrister

0:46:300:46:33

contrary to paragraph 301 A1, in particular that you expressed doubts about

0:46:330:46:38

the validity and honesty of his plea."

0:46:380:46:40

What?

0:46:400:46:42

Is this true? Of course not.

0:46:420:46:44

This is insane. We won the bloody case. We won!

0:46:450:46:48

Looks like it's not enough. What the hell's he doing?

0:46:480:46:54

Your silk application is going to have to wait till this is all sorted out. I'm sorry, it's very bad luck.

0:46:540:47:00

We need to weigh in on this right away, stop it in its tracks. Enough firepower, it may well work.

0:47:000:47:06

Danny! DOOR OPENS

0:47:060:47:09

See who you can rope back into the office, will you? It's six o'clock. Hey!

0:47:090:47:13

We'll thrash out a strategy here and now, all right?

0:47:150:47:19

DOOR CLOSES

0:47:250:47:27

Yeah, there's been a bit of a thing at work. It's a bit weird.

0:47:280:47:32

I'm going to have to stay later but maybe we can all go up together? Can you hang on?

0:47:320:47:36

"We're ready for the off. Why don't we just see you up there, eh?

0:47:360:47:40

But hurry up, OK? I want to show you something."

0:47:400:47:42

That's cryptic. "No, not really. Oh, and listen..."

0:47:430:47:47

PHONE CRACKLES Oh, I am losing you.

0:47:470:47:50

DISTORTED VOICE Nah.

0:47:500:47:52

"Hello?" I'll see you later, OK?

0:47:520:47:54

"Hello? Hello?" OK.

0:47:540:47:56

We are here. Yeah, we're here. I am really hungry.

0:48:140:48:17

I don't care.

0:48:170:48:19

Listen, we are going to wait for your dad to get back so we can all eat together, OK?

0:48:190:48:23

"Hi, it's Kate, I'm not here right but leave a message. Bye."

0:48:240:48:28

Chambers is a family.

Like all families we take care of one another.

We will run with this right through to the end. Whatever it takes.

0:52:460:52:50

Thank you. You have my word on it.

Sorry. Shit question.

I'm getting through it. Sorry to call out of the blue, I was in the area.

0:54:120:54:17

It's really great that you called, Danny. I really appreciate it.

0:54:170:54:21

How's everything with you? Fine, fine.

I don't know if I should tell you. Tell me what?

I, erm, I sent you a card. I hope...

0:55:200:55:23

You're defending him.

0:55:230:55:25

If you mean Liam Foyle, then yes.

0:55:280:55:30

Yes, you're correct.

Look, after everything that's happened, I mean...

You know as well as I do, for good or bad...

0:55:430:55:45

What can I say?

0:55:450:55:47

Everyone deserves a defence.

0:55:480:55:50

That's right, Maggie.

0:55:540:55:56

That's right.

0:55:590:56:01

Foyle murdered Sandra Mullins. You need to know that. You said otherwise in court.

0:56:100:56:15

Let that man in, you're risking everything. I mean it. Don't be alone.

0:56:150:56:18

It was today, the plea? They should have called you. He got bail.

0:56:180:56:22

When was this? This morning. Ohh!

0:56:220:56:25

Lawyers don't have an ounce of mercy in them. They can be manipulative.

0:56:250:56:29

Never said thank you. Oh, you're welcome. See you soon.

0:56:290:56:33

When were you planning on telling me? I want a meeting with everyone tonight. Dad! Look out!

0:56:330:56:38

Is he here? They said he'd already left.
