This article considers the decision in Crawford v Washington from an English perspective. In doing so, it examines the implications of the major changes to criminal hearsay doctrine in England and Wales that are currently being introduced. It also examines the implications of the presence in the European Convention on Human Rights, which has been effectively incorporated into English domestic law, of a guarantee similar to that provided by the US confrontation clause.
