Castle is a shrewd political operator with a brilliant understanding of how the legal ramifications of a case go beyond the innocence or guilt of a particular defendant. George plied his trade as an independent barrister - working both prosecution and defence cases - before being snapped up by the CPS in 1990 when he was at the top of his profession. He is driven by a sense of justice and it was considered a coup for the CPS to get him.
George is fiercely protective of Alesha and James but he'll always make the tough decision when necessary. He can cut to the heart of a case in seconds and is always able to put a counter-argument to whatever position someone else is taking.
George Castle has recently been appointed Director of Public Prosecutions, Henry Sharpe takes over the job of Director of the CPS.
