Martha Costello (Maxine Peake, Little Dorrit) is a brilliant, passionate defense barrister with a reputation for defending the poor and downtrodden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced intelligent drama Dec 29 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
SILK is an excellent, highly entertaining drama. The lead character is a smart-as-a-whip barrister in a London firm (called a 'set', apparently, in England) who is passionate about justice - seeking it for her clients and defending it against some of her slightly sleazy colleagues. She is human and fallible; she is professional and fiercely strong. The series is fascinating and it is truly wonderful to spend 1-hour-long episodes in the company of a female character I would like to share a meal with.

I bought this on spec and will definitely be seeking out seasons 2 and 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silk is Smooth Dec 14 2013

I can't wait until series 2 is available. This is an incredible program. It makes me wish I could access British TV from Canada. The characters are well-developed and authentic. Great program.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Series! Feb. 20 2014
Format:DVD
"Silk" is probably my favourite television series to come along in many years. The acting is superb and the story line and character development strikes a great balance between edgy, human, and at times humorous. The stories are interesting, though, I must say that they all touch on very disturbing subject matter. So this might not be the right series for you if you are squeamish about such things. I haven't bought Series 1 because both it and Series 2 are currently available on television. Shortly the third series will be aired. So, I am holding out for the end of Series 3 as I am betting on a three series pack being available soon. Anyway, this is a must see and yet one more example of British Television at its best.
