Judge Deed goes to the International Court of Justice in Brussels to hear the case of Pvt. David Clark who is accused of murdering 11 Iraqi civilians while on patrol in Basra. Deed doesn't get along with his two co-judges and dislikes their approach to justice. The prosecutor in particularly strident and a thorn in his side. In the UK, Deed hears an appeal along with two other judges of someone who was convicted of inciting hatred against Islam. With threats becoming more serious, all judges find themselves facing tighter security. Written by garykmcd

Another excellent episode in the "Deed" saga
13 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

We all accept (sadly) that this series is somewhat tongue-in-cheek. If you are prepared to suspend your disbelief, the series represents what we all would like to see happening to the rather stuffy British legal system. In this double episode, the Judge finds himself mostly at the European Courts at the Hague, involved in a case concerning the British Army's efforts in Basra and a group of Muslim extremists who take umbrage at the actions of one British soldier to defend himself in an impossible situation; and who, subsequently, finds himself accused of war crimes. The usual tingling mix of attempted government interference against the righteousness (no sarcasm) of Judge John Deed, plus a good dollop of attempted terrorism.
