LAW AND ORDER é uma série policial americana criada por Dick Wolf. Contrariando uma tendência da tv americana adaptar séries inglesas, LAW AND ORDER vaijou para o Reino Unido anos depois de ser um sucesso nos EUA.

Teve oito temporadas na tv inglesa. O elenco variou bastante nestas oito temporadas. O cast original, certamente era o melhor, com os ótimos Bradley Walsh (que ficou as oito temporadas), Freema Agyeman (excelente), Harriet Walker, Jamie Bamber e Ben Daniels.

Cada episódio mostra um crime que inicialmente é investigado pelos policiais do CID (Criminal Investigation Department) e depois levados a juízo pelos promotores da CPS (Crown Prosecution Service).

Ver os meandros do sistema legal inglês segura o interesse por todas as oito temporadas. Tudo é muito diferente e mais formal do que nos filmes americanos, dando aos julgamentos uma teatralidade insuperável.

Seeing the ins and outs of the English legal system holds the interest for all eight seasons. Everything is very different and more formal than in American films, giving judgments unsurpassed theatricality.
