From the BBC Press Release:

Tony Powell is accused of murdering his terminally ill partner Saskia Stanley in this new courtroom drama for BBC One Daytime. It’s a crime he vigorously denies, insisting it was a case of assisted suicide. A letter, apparently from Saskia, confirms this but a video tape Tony insists they made together is missing.

Tasked to defend Tony is barrister Sol Ridley. It’s his first murder case and he surprises colleagues by appointing pupil barrister Julie Prior as his junior. In chambers, Julie makes the mistake of crossing swords with formidable fellow barrister Valerie and her card is marked.
