Never afraid to question the establishment - despite threats to his future and to his loved ones that faced him in the last series - Judge John Deed has more than enough to contend with before he even arrives at court. His daughter, wilful Charlie, has decided to follow in her father's footsteps and embark on a legal career of her own; while close confidante Jo Mills is struggling to balance her home and work responsibilities with caring for a foster child.

Martin Shaw is an astonishingly good actor, who can command a scene with a slight raise of an eyebrow. His personal causes-animal rights and vegetarianism-are on full display, an indication of his importance to this series. Judge Deed is a target for his independence, something American judges expect as a matter of course. Consequently this series may be seen as a plea for a totally separate third branch of government. Whether it had any role in the constitutional reforms that took judges out of the House of Lords and under the authority of the new Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is an open question. If so then this may well be one of the most important television series in history.
As usual Deed's cases in the High Court are the most challenging- a cellphone entrepreneur who killed a young family (while talking on his cellphone) and a woman accused of killing her abusive husband with a baseball bat. That leaves my final question, why do British murderers use so many baseball bats? Why not cricket bats?
