Silk

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Thurs­day, ABC, 8.30pm

With the high rat­ings suc­cess of this court­room drama, it can be safely as­sumed plenty of view­ers un­der oath would con­fess to it be­ing a guilty Thurs­day night plea­sure. Tonight, bat­tle lines are drawn when Martha (Max­ine Peake) and Clive (Ru­pert Penry-Jones, right) find them­selves on op­pos­ing sides in a high pro­file case of as­sisted sui­cide. Amid the moral ar­gu­ments sur­round­ing such a con­tentious is­sue, Martha de­fends a mum ac­cused of help­ing her se­verely paral­ysed daugh­ter to com­mit sui­cide. Mean­while, the res­ig­na­tion of the Head of Cham­bers Alan Cow­drey (Alex Jen­nings) to take up a judge­ship, presents an op­por­tu­nity for one of the Silks.
