JUDGE JOHN DEED (article first published : 2007-06-18)

Martin Shaw reprises his ever-popular role as Judge John Deed in the series of the same name on BBC Prime.

Martin Shaw has received critical acclaim for his role as the crusading judge in GF Newman's legal drama, Judge John Deed. John Deed has more than enough on his plate dealing with a change in his working environment as his rebellious daughter, Charlie, has followed in her father's footsteps and is embarking on a legal career of her own. She is working as a junior to Deed's ex-lover, Jo, doing vital research and interviews.

However, Charlie finds difficulty in differentiating between her home and work life, John Deed her father, and John Deed the Judge. Deed also has his ongoing battles with the Establishment; refusing to compromise on sensitive and controversial issues to ensure that justice prevails.

But Rita 'Coop' Cooper (Barbara Thorn) is on hand as the voice of reason and Deed's eyes and ears whilst Sir Monty Everard (Simon Ward) and Laurence James (Fraser James) are determined to rein-in the unconventional Judge.

Judge John Deed is made up of 90 minute episodes and is screened on BBC Prime on DStv on Saturdays at 21h00.
