Sorry, should have realised it might be geo-locked.
I'm in no way technical so can't figure out how to d/l in order to put on YouTube but here's a recap:
Black screen upon which the letters that make up Law & Order UK gradually appear and a voice over talks of "how in the criminal justice system the people are represented by two separate but equally important groups - the police who investigate crime, and the crown prosecutors who prosecute offenders".
Then the screen changes to an image of the three main police characters and underneath it says Law and we get a clip from the first episode
-where a hospital is being evacuated due to the discovery of a suspicious package outside.
-We then see Ronnie and Matt and they have an exchange about the discovery of the bag.
-Screen changes (and we get those useful captions explaining where we are and what the date is.
- Ronnie and Matt are now talking to a doctor about what was discovered
We then get the Order side of things
- And we're in the office of the head of the CPS (played by the wonderful Bill Paterson) and the two CPS characters (James and Alesha) are trying to persuade their boss that there is enough for a case to be brought - he's not convinced yet that they have proved intent.
And that's your lot from the preview
As for Jamie's little interview...
Jamie discusses his character being the attack dog half of the double act with Ronnie, Matt where's his heart on his sleeve and idealistic still and not had Ronnie's experiences, not made those mistakes so still judgmental.
Matt is enthusiastic but see's things very black and white, makes his mind up quickly about who he thinks is guilty (but in a nice way!).
Jamie was attracted by Matt being a sort of gung-ho working class London guy who is unapologetically pround of being a policeman, whilst Jamie is middle class and not so gung-ho and never wanted to be a policeman, the differences are what makes Matt interesting to play.
London is also an attraction, being able to come back and show the city and its people (especially as they film on the streets of the city without closing streets down so the people in the background really are just going about their lives) is exciting.
All of this is intercut with some more brief clips from the episode - it looks great and I'm really digging the accent Jamie's using in the show
