The trial involved the character, Helen Titchener, facing a charge of attempted murder, after stabbing her husband. Fans of the programme will be aware that Helen has been a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her husband, Rob, due to his controlling and coercive behaviour.
During her interview, Kama was able to shine light on how the trial run in the programme compares to the modern day courtroom. Among other topics, Kama spoke about provisions for child witnesses to give evidence via pre-recorded video, and the recent pilot of pre-recorded cross-examination.
