Storyline

Janet King returns from a year's maternity leave determined to prove she still has her edge, but finds a very different Department of Public Prosecutions. Under growing political pressure, director Tony Gillies has formed an uneasy alliance with his police counterpart, Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli, and Janet's pre-eminence as Senior Crown Prosecutor is threatened by rising star Owen Mitchell, a former police prosecutor, willing to cut corners to win high-profile cases.

Season 1 - Wonderful series but spoiled in the final episode by ridiculous plot twist
11 June 2020 | by msghallSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this show right up until the final episode when the lead character acts in totally uncharacteristic fashion causing one to feel ripped off. Janet Kings makes for a wonderful lead, strong and wise with a resolute pursuit of justice. The rest of the cast is just as good although the actor playing Owen is a little too repulsive to not receive any comeuppance. It's just too bad about that final episode where lazy script writing makes a bit of a mockery of the rest of this otherwise fine show.
