Criminal Justice

One last thing I really must blog about to draw to your attention before I head off to revise hard for my up coming exams.

There is a fantastic five part series on BBC One. It started on Monday and runs every night this week (you can catch up on BBC iplayer). The series is called “Criminal Justice”

From the BBC website:

One mad night and Ben Coulter’s life is changed forever…

As he gets ready to go out on the town, the 21-year-old looks in the mirror. It will be the last time he’s able to recognise the person who looks back.

Little does Ben know that a wild encounter with a sexy young woman will tear his life apart.

Ben’s ordeal begins when he wakes up to find her stabbed to death in her bed. And, what’s worse, he can’t remember what happened the night before.

What follows is a rollercoaster ride through the criminal justice system, where the truth is optional and what counts is playing the game, in order to come out on top.

No-one wants to hear Ben’s side of the story.

Having watched the first two epoisodes tonight I have become gripped on the story. In my mind it is one of the best representations of what actually goes on in the criminal justice system.
