Judge John Deed: Season 5 (2005/BBC DVD)
C Sound: C Extras: D Episodes: C+
Judge John Deed is the best judge in the High
Court; he deals with cases that attract the media and challenges the law, rules
that defend the guilty. His ability to
look all the evidence with a cool mind and heart without ever getting involved
places him above the law. Judge Deed
inspires those who worked with him but is scorned by politicians and policy
makers for finding holes and fallacies with rules
He is also a judge who can't be bribed, a lawman that upholds justice, a
champion to the weak, a terror to the corrupt. His main problem lies not with all his cases
but the Home Secretary who fears him for uncovering his connection to corrupt
business men and politics that favor the rich or powerful. However, the same can not be said of John
Deeds personal life, behind closed doors is a maze of affairs and drama,
including his ex-wife, current lover and even his own daughter in his court.
This is like a British version of courtroom drama, the series focus on
tantalizing cases that reporters would have a field day with, but along with
all that is all the drama of politics of relationships. Almost any time any of the characters say 'You
want to have diner with me?' it might as well be asking them to have
sex with them, but in the end you almost always have to admire the way
rule of law and point and case which concludes each case when the judge makes
the final decision.
A black prisoner is found cannibalized by a racist roommate, question is did
the prisoner guards organize this with a more sinister purpose?
