The good news for actor Rupert Penry-Jones, who plays barrister Clive Reader in hit BBC drama Silk, is that his character has finally been made a QC — as you can see below. The bad news is that he was forced to miss yesterday’s historic Wimbledon final for the filming of the third series…


Poor Rupert…

This is how the filming looked, with Falcon Chambers re-branded ‘Shoe Lane Building’ for the day.


However, the eagle-eyed will have noticed that the ‘Shoe Lane Chambers’ ladder (pictured above top) — which features the names of Reader, fellow star barrister Martha Costello and clerk Billy Lamb — appears to have been placed on top of the real one belonging to Goldsmith Chambers.
