Law & Order: UK - Series Eight

"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecution Service who prosecute the offenders."

The cream of British acting talent are back together for the eighth series of the hugely successful 'Law & Order: UK'.
