MJ's doc: the endgame

Forget horror movies: to really have your blood chilled, you should have watched the trial of Dr Conrad Murray for his deplorable role in the death of Michael Jackson.

Wanting to celebrate Halloween this year, you could of course have watched some of the tepid old horror films on DSTV. But to really have your blood chilled, you should have watched, on Sky News, the broadcast trial of Dr Conrad Murray for his deplorable role in the death of Michael Jackson.

The judge has been extraordinarily patient and indulgent with them - some judges I've testified before would have jailed the lot of them for contempt of court weeks ago. But even his patience is wearing thin. The star defence witness, Dr Paul White, will shortly face a contempt hearing for making rude remarks in court, and speaking to journalists despite the instruction not to do so.
