Separated at birth

This week's separated at birth has left members of The Lawyer team quite freaked out. Readers will be familiar with the youthful looks of associate editor extraordinaire Matheu 'Doogie Howser' Swallow, who confounds millions by being able to hold down a responsible job despite the fact that he is clearly only about 14. Still, The Lawyer staff has now rumbled the wunderkid's secret. He has clearly done a deal with the devil, and while his office persona remains eternally adolescent, elsewhere his image ages and he goes under the pseudonym Philip Vallance QC of Berrymans Lace Mawer.
