Deprived of the restraining presence of Roger Thursby, of Brothers in Law, the courts tend to get out of hand in Much in Evidence.
An insurance company was none too keen to pay up when Mr Richmond, bald and lame, most unfortunately had his head dented and his safe ransacked on the very night when there was £100,000 in the house. Perhaps F. E. Smith could have quieted the much-talking Mr Justice Soames, but he was too much for Andrew Brent, representing the defendant company. So the company paid.
But - again most unfortunately for Mr Richmond - it transpired that a series of bald and lame men had lately been making dubious claims on insurance companies. And a cheerful gallery of barrow boys, drunken solicitors, and others are dragged through the courts before Mr Richmod is able to establish that coincidence has a longer arm than the law. Indeed, far longer, as he discovered later.
