Inns of Court legal drama is back.
The BBC has quietly placed a trailer for the new series of Silk on YouTube in anticipation of the show’s return next Monday.
Hype has been building around the third series of Silk for months, with actors Rupert Penry Jones (who plays barrister Clive Reader) and Neil Stuke (senior clerk Billy Lamb) piquing fans’ interests by tweeting photos of the filming.
The big news in the latest series is that Reader has become a QC — information we first reported last year after a barrister spotted this Shoe Lane Chambers ladder as he was walking through the Inns of Court one Sunday afternoon.
One of the key story-lines in the new series will apparently see star barrister Martha Costello (played by Maxine Peake) defend the son of the head of Shoe Lane Chambers for killing a police officer. The first episode will air on Monday 24 February at 9pm.
