Director/Producer Gary Brown

Series nine of the popular afternoon drama series starring David Schofield. Frank Twist's and Sarah Gold's legal advisers operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week to set free burglars, muggers, murderers and even some innocent people who find themselves on the wrong side of a cell door. Sarah and Frank have a child but their relationship is purely business as they clean up the mean streets of Manchester. The combination of complex crime stories and witty humour make this a popular returning series.
