List of Law & Order: UK episodes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Law & Order: UK is a British police procedural and legal television programme, adapted from the American series Law & Order. The programme is financed by the production companies Kudos Film and Television, Wolf Films, and Universal Media Studios.[1] Head writer Chris Chibnall based the first two series of episodes on scripts and episodes of the parent series. Although Chibnall left the programme after the first thirteen episodes were complete, the practice of adapting episodes from the American series has continued through to the present day.

Law & Order: UK is based in London. The current cast members are Bradley Walsh, Ben Bailey Smith, Paterson Joseph, Dominic Rowan, Georgia Taylor, Peter Davison. The original cast also included Jamie Bamber, Harriet Walter, Ben Daniels, Freema Agyeman and Bill Paterson. After leaving the show, they were replaced by Nicholls, Joseph, Rowan, Taylor and Davison respectively.

The series premiered worldwide on ITV on Thursday 23 February 2009. As of 9 April 2014, a total of 50 episodes have been shown globally. Internationally, the programme is broadcast in thirteen-episode runs, however, in Britain, each thirteen-episode run is broadcast in two halves - one containing seven episodes, and the other containing the remaining six. This results in several episodes being broadcast in foreign countries months before their British broadcast.[2][3] The series premiered in America on BBC America on October 3, 2010.[4][5]
