Following the cuts to Legal Aid the pressure is mounting on Shoe Lane barristers' chambers. Head Clerk Billy Lamb (Neil Stuke) anticipates that they are on the brink of financial collapse and makes a desperate bid to secure work from an unscrupulous solicitor. But his wheeler-dealing creates unease in the Shoe Lane clerks' room and he soon finds himself at loggerheads with his star-performing barrister Rose Parker (Alex Tregear).

The drama series is inspired by the BBC One legal drama Silk and features the same core cast and characters from the TV show's clerks' room: Neil Stuke, Theo Barklem-Biggs, Amy Wren and John Macmillan.

As Billy Lamb would have it known, the Clerks' Room is the epicentre of everything that happens in a successful set of chambers like Shoe Lane. Barristers' clerks act as their agents; they get the cases, distribute the work, and can make or break careers. To some, they're a gang of wide-boys with an inflated sense of their own importance. To others, they're an essential pillar that dates back to the beginnings of the Inns of Court.

The television show Silk is created by Peter Moffat.

Director: Sasha Yevtushenko.
