How does someone just pop down to the local magistrates and get an “Interim Residence Order” without the parents knowing about it? That awful grandfather in Coronation Street did just that.

In France prior to the 1970’s of course she could have sought to rely on the crime passionnel defence – in US law the same principles might supply her with a valid defence of temporary insanity… What is Gail ‘up for’ by the way, being a diligent law student I haven’t watched Corrie for quite some time.. Reply Link Jonathan Stirland 19 March 2010 at 21:22 Not sure how Mr Dockery missed the obvious change in the law relating to Bail Applications following a charge of Murder – as a 01.02.10 those charged with Murder have no right to make an application for bail in Mags Court………let Granada TV have my email address for further accurate criminal law advice. Reply Link Anonymous 20 March 2010 at 11:10 Setting aside the personal comments regarding the physical features of the actress “Ms Helen Worth”; the character of Gail McIntyre appears to have poor judgement when selecting partners, i,e, Richard Hillman et al! Reply Link Anonymous 24 March 2010 at 11:13 I see no reason why you shouldn’t run this type of story. Some of us find this rather more interesting then the cliquey copy relating to the huge city firms and their grotesque fees, partner poaching and other conduct that would be thought incredible if it appeared on a TV soap! As regards the posters who made cruel personal comments on the appearance of the actress who apparently plays the character, perhaps their own appearances are indicative of the reason they stay home and watch TV soaps.

These scenes would have been written and filmed months before the change in law regarding bail aplications for murder charges 01.02.10. Good luck with becoming a tv legal advisor- but you might want put some work into researching how tv works before putting yourself forward. Reply Link 2Jags 26 March 2010 at 16:30 Right then I’m no admirer of the face of Gail but in the name of natural Justice and the Court of public opinion I think the individuals that have described her features as less than pretty please add a photo of yourself in order that we may all decide whether you indeed ought not to throw stones and glass houses etc Reply Link jonathan stirland 28 April 2010 at 15:44 Anonymous | 25-Mar-2010 11:06 am Perhaps you should stick to reading the TV Times or Take a Break – I thought that the Lawyer was about law and lawyers….silly me!
