Storyline

Roberto Romero is released after serving 8 years of a 12 year sentence and he has only one objective - to seek revenge on Judge Deed who he sees as the person primarily responsible for putting him behind bars. He harasses the judge and his daughter and even poisons his dog. The situation is all the more difficult as the judge's relations with the police have reached a low ebb given that he has refused bail to two police officers charged with beating a youth and with intimidating an eye witness. In other cases, Deed presides over the trial of a one time professional boxer who beat his best friend into a coma when he learns the man and his wife are having an affair and with two litigious brothers who have been in court for years and flatly refuse to resolve their dispute.

Romero, Romero, wherefore art thou Romero...
8 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whilst members of the legal fraternity sometimes raise their eyes in despair at the unreality of Judge John Deed, it makes a genuine effort to raise key issues such as police corruption, sentencing, and the romantic interludes of the lead character, Judge John Deed, who has a history of being a radical yet top notch QC who was appointed to the bench.

This is episode 3 of season 1, and here Mr Romero (not Romeo) is out to exact revenge on His Honour, for the sentence Deed imposed on him for rape. Romero has his sights set on John's daughter Charlie, who is a law student, possibly at a red brick university (not Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Warwick). It's unusual that Charlie doesn't seem to lock the door of her dorm room, giving Romero numerous opportunities to access it.

Two sub-plots are two police officers who aren't granted bail by John (causing some consternation amongst his protective officers), and the trial of a boxer for grievous bodily harm on his best mate, who was having an affair with his wife. The elephant in the room was the best mate's race. The boxer is black, his wife white, but the best mate?
