One of my favorite Brit series with only a faint comic comic touch is the series “Rumpole of the Bailey”. Rumpole, a truly eccentric British barrister, played by the great Leo McKern is a representative of an idealised old fashioned Britain where common sense rules and humanity prevails over the letter of the law. Good fun, and it gives some insights into UK judiciary as the writer behind the series, British barrister John Mortimer, was a man of the law. Highly recommended, here is he pilot episode.
