Scottish actress, who has worked extensively in television, including appearances in Dixon of Dock Green, Rumpole of the Bailey and the 1972 adaptation of the Lord Peter Wimsey tale The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club. She appeared in films such as Peter's Friends (1992), Much Ado About Nothing (1993) (playing Ursula alongside daughter Emma's Beatrice), and The Winter Guest (1997) (playing Elspeth alongside daughter Emma's Frances).

In November 2009, Law published her first book, "Notes to my Mother-In-Law," which concerns the 17 years Thompson's mother-in-law lived with the family from the mid-1960s until her death.

Law was married to actor Eric Thompson from 1957 until his death in 1982. Their daughters, Emma and Sophie Thompson, are both actresses. She has appeared in many documentaries and interviews concerning her late husband's work on The Magic Roundabout.
