Kavanagh Q.C.

Show Summary

Welcome to the Kavanagh Q.C. guide at TV.com. James Kavanagh (played by the late John Thaw, who also starred in Inspector Morse) is a QC (for an explanation of QC, see below), although an unusual one, being from a tough working-class background. In each episode of the show he deals with a challenging case which puts his many skills to the test. The show is often repeated on U.K. television, and all episodes are now available on DVD. QC: In the English legal system, a barrister is a lawyer who has the right to be heard in higher courts, while a QC is a Queen's Counsel, one of the select band of leading barristers recognized by the Lord Chancellor. (A QC becomes a King's Counsel when the reigning monarch is a man.) QCs wear a black silk gown with a flap collar and long closed sleeves, instead of the shorter black cotton gown with open sleeves used by ordinary barristers. On ceremonial occasions, QCs wear long wigs (like judges), black breeches, silk stockings, and lace jabots at the neck instead of white linen bands.moreless

  • The Beginning Of A Classic

    It's so strange that this series has received such an average rating. . . ITS A CLASSIC!

    From the moment I first saw this episode I was hooked and couldn't stop watching. Yes, to people who may be used to something more fluffy like Law and Order or Ally McBeal when things go off on many tangents may not enjoy this program. People who like a serious british drama with an incredible ensemble cast and gripping story lines will eat this up in seconds, with numerous appearances by the stars before they were famous along the way.

    Brilliant story telling and John Thaw at his best ever.moreless
