I wouldn't take any of it seriously at all.

This was a poorly written episode of a popular drama that ignores reality while seeking to be contemporary and slightly political. A judge and counsel taking about the case outside the court would invalidate the trial. Read nothing into this 'entertainment'. Hardly 'A Few Good Men' was it?

Mr Creosote have a word with yourself :D .Well you probably would do her
and then feel a bit sordid afterwards .
Bit unrealistic 11 dead chogis from 3 bursts with a lsw .Great bit of shouting at the tv, tv.Think it makes jag look realistic.I was half expecting the fat bloke playing the defence sec to unzip his head and turn into an alien like he did in dr who :D .Bet the trial of tony will be funnier .

Sadly my enjoyment was clouded by silly things like the bloke playing ACGS (I'm assuming, as a Maj-Gen in Whitehall) being barely old enough to be a major and wondering if the Def Sec was meant to be Nicholas Soames after a Tory election victory.

The bit that really put me off, apart from the actress coming a close second to the prosecution lawyer, was that if you're trying to do away with a judge using a chocolate-box-borne IED, why raise his security levels by the delivery of suicide bomb-style warning letters and cavorting with him in public infront of his close protection officer?

Completely unrealistic, spoiling what could have been a good episode. No Govt, not even chav Liarbour, would agree to a trial in a host country. And what about a Maj Gen still in his 30s?

That said, it was lovely to spend an hour thinking about sharing a bed with the Prosectution and Defence briefs (concurrently of course)!

But if you had to choose: Kim Thomson (looking very good for 46) or Jenny Seagrove (fantastic legs and 50 this year)? I don't envy Martin Shaw much (!), although having to deal with a grenade in Pamela Stephenson's cleavage when he was a "Professional" has probably left him inured to the charms of other women.

Having rewatched that particular episode a couple of months ago, courtesy of "Men & Motors" on Freeview (hold on, I thought, that's Pamela Stephenson...) I suspect you'll find it was Lewis Collins who took a flickknife to the front of her blouse to get the grenade out...

Did you notice that the prat playing the Maj-Gen was wearing what looked like the LS&GC as his first medal :roll:

They already have. They sold a few our our blokes down the river in Northern Ireland in 1989. (The Lee Clegg trial). The blokes were stitched to keep PIRA happy.

Fallschirmjager mate, do not under any circumstances respond to 'colourwave' AKA Chubb/doctrine/pentwyn. She will never leave you alone if she thinks you like her. Your post just responding in a non abusive manner will make her think you are in love with her.

Could be wrong. It may be an OBE :oops:

I think it is a military MBE. There might be a DSO or DCM ribbon next to it (both as quoted), but hard to tell. No GSM or South Atlantic, and appears to be wearing an MC ribbon next to the QGJM medal ribbon.

Pedantic i know, but if you are going to describe someones imaginary service and awards, you might as well bother to do a bit of research into the relevant medal ribbons.
