Publisher's Summary

The casebook of Norman Birkett KC (1883-1962) covers pretty much every story that entertained the readers of News of the World between the wars. Birkett was a busy man who, in those days before legal specialisation, could at any one time be dealing simultaneously with a juicy murder, a society divorce, or a livid libel action.
In this episode, Birkett takes on his most famous case, involving blackmail, snobbery, scandal, and bullfighting. Starring Neil Dudgeon as Birkett, with Bonnie Engstrom, Alun Raglan, Joanna Monro, Nicholas Jones, Carl Prekopp, Victoria Inez Hardy, and Adjoa Andoh, Birkett and the Naked Toreador was written by Caroline and David Stafford.
