Silk series 3 episode 4

Interesting episode. Special Counsel are usually selected from a small number of barristers known to the Security Authorities, and I understand work in Government buildings not their own chambers. Still it made for good television.
Did Martha make the right call about Amy’s complaint or has her own relationship with Billy coloured her judgement. She  appears to have misjudged her client in this episode as well.
  While the embarrassment of Caroline was artfully engineered allowing her to escape an unfortunate result in her trial because she was unprepared.
