Law and Disorder is a British sitcom that aired on ITV in 1994. Starring Penelope Keith, it was written by Alex Shearer, who had also written No Job for a Lady, which Keith appears in. It was directed and produced by John Howard Davies. Law and Disorder was made for the ITV network by Central and Thames Television.



The main character in Law and Disorder was Philippa Troy, a widowed acid-tongued barrister, who used a no-nonsense, and sometimes illegal, approach to winning cases. She always won, often beating Gerald Triggs. Troy also wrote a series of children's books called Prickly Peter, and drove an open-top sports car. Other characters were her solicitor Arthur Bryant, clerk Steven, her junior Susan and the Judge.
