Judge John Deed Series 3
Despite the red robe and wig, Judge John Deed is no average high court judge. Good-looking, fit and fifty-something, he has a rakish charm that belies his sharp intellect. His passion for justice and his maverick approach set him at odds with the Lord Chancellor's department. This judge's individual approach too often flies in the face of convention for his own good as he determinedly avoids the traditionalism the system tries to force upon him.
The Bafta Award-winning BBC courtroom drama with the hard-hitting Judge John Deed continues on DVD release with series 3 & 4; these aired originally between 2002 and 2003. Judge John Deed has become one of Martin Shaw's defining roles. The sharp intellect, rakish charm, keen wit and passionate belief in justice were all qualities GF Newman had in mind for Martin when writing the series.
