Bbc Drama - You Don’t Know Me (With Spoilers)
1/4 - A young man is on trial for murder. The evidence against him is compelling. He dispenses with his barrister and sums up himself - explaining how he met a young woman and fell in love. She moved in then one day disappeared. He enlisted a drug dealer (the man who was killed) to help him find her. He then sees the woman working as a street prostitute. He vows to get her back.
Was the portrayal of the courtroom accurate; in particular, would the accused sum up from the dock, or alongside the legal teams.

The accused is allowed to do the closing speech, integrating the evidence that has been heard (and, as the judge said last night, no new evidence can be introduced). Maybe the accused can do that only if he doesn't have legal representation... which is why last night's accused sacked his legal team.
