British free-to-air channel CBS Justice have started broadcasting original episodes of legal drama series Perry Mason.
Starring Raymond Burr, Barbara Hale and William Hopper, Perry Mason originally aired on CBS from 1957-’66. It follows criminal defence lawyer Mason (Burr) as he investigates and fights injustice.
There were several other incarnations of the character, originally written in literary form by Erle Stanley Gardner, but the original run with a younger pre-Ironside Burr is undoubtedly the most remembered.
Thank you CBS Justice for bringing a piece of classic American TV to British television as this series, in particular, is not all that easy to get access to.
Perry Mason can be seen on CBS Justice in the UK on weekday afternoons at 12 pm and again at 6 pm.
