Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the sixth and final season of the BBC series, Judge John Deed (George Gently's Martin Shaw) takes on complementary cases involving Iraq War veterans. For the first two-part episode, "War Crimes," he travels to the Hague's International Criminal Court to decide the fate of Private Clark (Neil Grainger), whose attempt to stop a terrorist caused the deaths of 11 civilians (away from the United Kingdom, Deed gets to ditch the woolly white wig). The judge's girlfriend, barrister Jo Mills (Jenny Seagrove), defends Clark, while Deed stays in a hotel with police protection. Both Mills and the sexually aggressive prosecuting attorney, Marie (Kim Thomson), try to get him to recuse himself, but he refuses (and it's hard to believe a woman in Marie's position could be so unprofessional as to proposition a judge). Trouble, however, awaits when an attractive hotel guest (Juliet Aubrey) does her best to catch Deed's eye. A more cautious justice might put on the brakes, but Deed gets close to her just as the case takes a critical turn, a decision that could prove deadly since she has ties to a radical Islamic group. In the second episode, "Evidence of Harm," Deed returns home for a case concerning a soldier suffering neurological damage after a regimen of required vaccinations contributed to two deaths, including his own. With the assistance of his daughter, Charlie (Louisa Clein), and his trusty assistant, Coop (Barbara Thorn), Deed sets out to find why his legal aid ended just as the man was about to go public. Both episodes raise important questions about the way governments and corporations treat those who put themselves in harm's way for the greater good, but the judge's roving eye and overactive libido make him look foolish at times, even if Shaw's distinctive characterization remains engaging. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Can Judge John Deed's unrelenting idealism lead to ultimate justice? Or is his rebellious nature doing more harm than good? In two nail-biting double episodes, the eponymous judge is sent to the Hague as the British representative at the International Criminal Court, where he must try a young soldier for war crimes in Iraq. Instead he uncovers nefarious reasons for bringing him to trial. Meanwhile, back in the UK, a scandal involving pharmaceutical companies and withdrawn legal aid leads right to the heart of the Government.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ran Out of Steam in Last Season June 22, 2012
Format:DVD
Tv series have a finite life span. At some point they just run out of steam and everyone needs to move onto something else. The early seasons of this show were brilliant with Martin Shaw doing an excellent job as the judge. He runs a very tight ship in his courtroom and truly tries to lead the process towards justice for all. The first mistake this series made was taking him out of his courtroom and sending him to the Hague instead where he serves on a tribunal. The second mistake this final series made was to have two giant episodes where everything is a conspiracy upon conspiracy. This was so far removed from the judge's usually razor sharp defined issues which are tried in his courtroom. If you have not watched this show before, I recommend you get the first few seasons. They are brilliant and worth the investment.

THE 6TH SEASON OF "JUDGE JOHN DEED" IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE WHY THIS DRAMA SERIES IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER FROM THE BBC. IT CONTINUES TO HAVE GREAT STORYLINES FEATURING THE ACTING OF MARTIN SHAW AS HE BUCKS THE SYSTEM.

4.0 out of 5 stars Judge John Deed: Season Six September 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this season six because it had no connection to the previous season. What happened to the characters left hanging in season five?
There was a wedding planned, a fiance going back to South Africa, and no carry-over to the next season. I love the story lines, the actors,and am sorry they didn't bridge the two seasons better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judge John Deed - Seasons 5 & 6 April 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Judge John, Jo, Charlie and the whole gang take on topical controversial cases once again. The series has been wonderfully produced, directed, filmed and acted. I believe Seasons 5 and 6 are the very last, and I shall miss them all. Be aware that these two DVDs are in PAL format and therefore unplayable on American equipment that lacks built in decoding to NTSC. You have to get an inexpensive conversion program to do this, or as in my case have a guru for a friend!

2.0 out of 5 stars Judge John Deed Series Six September 29, 2012
By Granny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Disappointing, compared to the other earlier series.
The long period between filming the last series and the previous ones found the actors getting a little stale in their roles and somehow the story line just didnt work for me and my husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series - I'll miss it September 16, 2012
By BKR
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the episodes throughout the 6 series of Judge John Deed. If you haven't seen them all, I envy you the journey. While some people did not enjoy the final season 6, I have to say that I did. I was not at all upset that Jo Mills shows up as just Mrs. Mills, and her marriage in season 5 is irrelevant in season 6. That's great by me; I thought that the plot line with her marrying Marc was the weakest of the 6 seasons. The final season is made up of two long episodes, each broken into two parts. So you have a DVD for each of the episodes with parts 1 and 2 - nice for those of us who want to stretch out the viewing pleasure. I would liked to have seen more episodes, but I'm not sure they could have ended the series any better than they did. And had the show moved forward, there would surely have been some major changes. Leaving us wanting more was not a bad idea.

The plots and sub plots together with excellent acting make this particular series extremely good entertainment and when combined with the other five series enable one to watch and rewatch without the feeling of (yawn) having seen it all before.

Judge Deed is great in the courtroom. His personal life is so-so. Too much involvement with Jo Mills and any other woman that comes across his path.
