Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The weekly British crime drama Mortimer's Law was launched by BBC1 with a 70-minute pilot episode on February 6, 1998. Amanda Root starred as Rachel Mortimer, a London-based barrister who returned to her home village in the Welsh marches. Before long, Rachel was appointed the local coroner, and as such became involved in a dizzying progression of murder investigations. The remaining five episodes of Mortimer's Law each ran 50 minutes.
