Silk returns for a third series, and feelings run high when a murder trial close to home sends shockwaves through Shoe Lane Chambers.

Clive (Rupert Penry-Jones) is now a Silk and he and Martha (Maxine Peake) get closer, but a change in direction for the Chambers could seriously divide their interests.

Meanwhile Billy (Neil Stuke) is struggling to cope with the secret of his illness and new Practice Manager Harriet (Miranda Raison) sends ripples through the Clerks Room.

A shock resignation jolts chambers and Billy begins to take steps to ensure the future of Shoe Lane, with or without him.

Silk was commissioned by BBC Controller of Drama, Ben Stephenson, and Danny Cohen, Director of BBC Television and outgoing Controller of BBC One. Written by Peter Moffatt with Executive Producer Hilary Salmon, Producer Matt Strevens and Director Marc Jobst.
