Niamh and Nick separately represent a warring couple charged with owning dangerous dogs. Bumbling Nick wins his case by a fluke whilst the more competent Niamh loses. Reader nonetheless ensures she gets the next brief but Nick has to represent the third defendant in the indecency charge when his barrister falls ill. Thanks to information from Mark's solicitor Reader's client is exposed as a party to entrapment by the police,exonerating the other two though Mark still returns to his pimp. Kate and John try to rally the other barristers to oust Billy for showing favoritism. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
