A MOCK courtroom in Hatfield became the set for a BBC drama this week.
Silk, which highlights the problems modern barristers face, was being filmed at the University of Hertfordshire on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Stars Maxine Peake, who was previously in Dinnerladies and Shameless, and Rupert Penry-Jones, from Spooks, were on set shooting scenes.
Filming took place at the entrance of the Law Court Building, at the de Havilland Campus, in Mosquito Way, and in their Crown Court Room.
The scenes will make up part of one episode of the third series.
