Judge John Deed is on a mission for justice - and he's prepared to break the rules to deliver it.
In his red robes and wig Judge John Deed might look like every other High Court judge, but his passionate belief in justice sets him apart from his peers. To the police force, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Lord Chancellor's Department and even many of his colleagues, Deed is a man more concerned with justice than the letter of the law - a man who will not shun the difficult questions or compromise his principles. But Deed has made it to the top on his own terms and knows it will take every ounce of his sharp intellect, fearless questioning and rakish charm to keep him there.

The Pilot and Series 1 of Judge John Deed raise the bar on what UK TV networks does so very well - British court room drama. Martin Shaw as the Judge is an inspired casting, he is different, at times quirky, complex, compassionate and committed in his beliefs, as the character demands, but he is the Judge; very believable, well informed, and very, very well played. And he is equally well supported by fine a cast who each play their roles with clear commitment and interest. The energy and enthusiasm they bring to their performances gives each episode a delightful and tangible chemistry through their interaction that makes this a very believable and a very real drama. That the episodes don't shy away from tackling contemporary issues, that years later are still issues in our society, adds considerably to the worth of this series.
