Silk: The Clerks' Room.

August 7th, 2015

Episode 40 of 145 episodes

By Mick Collins. Inspired by the television show Silk, created by Peter Moffat. Following the cuts to Legal Aid the pressure is mounting on Shoe Lane barristers' chambers. Head Clerk Billy Lamb (Neil Stuke) anticipates that they are on the brink of financial collapse and makes a desperate bid to secure work from an unscrupulous solicitor. But his wheeler-dealing creates unease in the Shoe Lane clerks' room and he soon finds himself at loggerheads with his star-performing barrister Rose Parker (Alex Tregear). The drama series is inspired by the BBC One legal drama Silk and features the same core cast and characters from the TV show's clerks' room: Neil Stuke, Theo Barklem-Biggs, Amy Wren and John Macmillan.
