Doubt cast 

"Doubt" review by Eva Diaz  2/16/17
Airs Wednesdays on CBS

I wanted to watch this show because I love legal shows. This one has a great cast, headed by Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, the star lawyer at a law firm known for taking high profile or difficult cases.  Elliot Gould stars as her boss and mentor, Isaiah Roth.  The rest of the cast is great as well, especially Dulé Hill as Albert and Laverne Cox as Albert. The show is very fast-paced and could slow down just a tiny bit to introduce the characters and their problems to us, as well as focus on the cases they feature each week.  

I like the fact that the show is funny and quirky while taking on serious cases.  I also like the fact that it shows that lawyers have personal lives as well as their work lives.  If you like serious procedural lawyer shows, you won't like this show.  If you were a fan of shows like "Drop Dead Diva," this is the perfect show for you to watch.  I enjoyed it and will watch it again, hoping it will slow down a little, and strike more of a balance between the characters personal lives and their work lives.

I give this show 4 out of 5 stars.  


DOUBT stars Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, Billy Brennan, an altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. Sadie is hiding her growing feelings from everyone, including her close friend and colleague, Albert Cobb, who thinks he knows everything about her. Working on other cases at the practice is Cameron Wirth, a transgender Ivy League graduate who fights passionately for her clients since she’s experienced injustice first hand; Tiffany Simon, a second-year associate who is quickly learning the ropes from Wirth; and Nick, a former felon who earned his degree while serving time. They all consider it a privilege to work for Isaiah Roth, a revered legal lion and “lefty” legend, whose approval is their holy grail. Sadie’s decision to become involved with her client could put her career, as well as her happiness, at risk if Billy is found guilty, which means she needs to work all the harder to prove reasonable doubt, even if she has some herself.
