Four months after his daughter is killed in a traffic accident, Maurice Hart legally purchases a shotgun and kills the driver who had been acquitted of any criminal responsibility. The defendant refuses to testify in his defense but Judge Deed does his best to ensure a balanced presentation of the evidence. The Lord Chancellor's Department has grown tired of Deed's aggressive behavior and develop a plan to force his resignation. Judge Deed's daughter, Charlie, starts university and falls in with activists and needs both her father's and her grandfather's assistance to get her friend off. Written by garykmcd

jurisimprudence and a twinkle in the eye
26 July 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

Feeling a little brain dead on a friday night, Judge John Deed and a glass of wine are a natural mix. The political undercurrents are delicious, yet reserved, and the stuff shirts who abound seem to be perpetually in a tizzy. This Judge plays in his courtroom and his active jousting is a sight to behold. I hope I see more of Judge John Deed.
