The Chatterley Affair - Richard Hoggart

The defence calls Richard Hoggart (David Tennant), a Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Leicester, to present his view of D.H. Lawrence's controversial book, Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Hoggart was an expert witness at the Lady Chatterley trial in 1960, and his argument that it was an essentially moral and "puritan" work, which merely repeated words he had heard on a building site on his way to the court, is sometimes viewed as having had a decisive influence on the outcome of the trial.
