Series 2 - 2. Men of Substance

Men of Substance

About this programme

2/6. Customs seize a massive heroin shipment and Kavanagh agrees to prosecute the importer, a self-made man with all the trappings of success, including a yacht and a villa in Portugal. Unfortunately, he also has a staff of hired heavies who make the mistake of threatening Lizzie in a bid to get him off the hook - thus setting the scene for a bitterly personal courtroom wrangle. John Thaw and Lisa Harrow star.
