Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Britain's "answer" to such American legal-eagle series as L.A. Law and The Practice, North Square was set in Leeds. The stories revolved a round a group of savvy lawyers, young and old, who encountered just as much excitement off the job as they did in court. Created by Peter Moffat, the series was distinguished by its clever dialogue and logical plot lines; as a bonus, Jon Costelloe won the series a BAFTA award for his razor-sharp editing. Unfortunately, the series never built up a very large viewership; thus, ten weeks after its Channel 4 debut on October 18, 2000, North Square was no more.
