Storyline

Judge Deed presides over a case of three street gang members who are charged with murdering a rival drug dealer who was starting to sell drugs on their turf. The accused have no respect for the court system, interrupt regularly and refuse to abide by the judge's instructions. When a key witness is killed and members of the jury are threatened, Deed is faced with a dilemma. The government is pushing the concept of trial by judge alone as a means of reducing the cost of the judicial system. All judges, including Deed, are strongly opposed as they see trial by jury as the cornerstone of the British justice system. As such, Deed very much wants to continue the trial with a jury. Jo Mills continues to struggle with the child welfare authorities in her attempts to adopt a former client's now orphaned son, Michael. She gets support from an unexpected quarter.

The judge defends the jury system
23 September 2007 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Judge Deed presides over the trial of three gang members charged with the murder of a rival drug pusher. Behind the scene the Home Office is trying to put an end to "Trial by Jury," which it regards as an economic luxury.

Unfortunately for the judge this particular case has been marked as a typical example and Deed is pressured to make a decision he is philosophically opposed to.

As the trial proceeds the star witness, a prostitute, is brutally murdered. Furthermore 2 jurors are bashed and threatened by the accused family. For a while it would appear the Home Office is going to have its way.

A side story is the effort by Deed's long suffering girl friend to adopt a boy left orphaned when a client dies.

I like this series. It can be a little long winded at times. But the clever plots and character development leave you feeling satisfied.
