Judge John Deed: Season Five

Judge John Deed faces more tough decisions in and out of the courtroom in the fifth season of the dramatic series. For Judge John Deed, following the letter of the law can be tricky when the courtroom is clouded with conspiracy, heartbreak and scandal. A passion for doing right often leaves Deed at odds with his colleagues, family and lovers. Is all fair in the pursuit of justice? Controversial cases, pressure from high places, family problems and a broken heart, the eponymous judge has them all in the fifth season. In the courtroom, Deed presides over a murder that threatens to unmask the corruption of the prison service while the case of an animal rights activist accused of murdering a scientist brings him into direct conflict with his equally strong-willed daughter. Away from the walls of justice, Deed's relationship with Jo Mills deteriorates when her former lover returns out of the blue. What will it take for justice to be served - in and out of the courtroom?

Loved all this series but this was the shortest season. Wish it would have continued. Really enjoyed all their stories. There were 2 episodes that were not on this dvd, you can watch them on U-tube.

I love and own the entire Judge John Deed series but am VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT THE LAST TWO EPISODES ARE MISSING FROM SERIES 5!!
Amazon are you ever going to release the complete series? I would certainly purchase it as it is not only good viewing but it also continues the continuity of the story line between the Judge, Jo and the doctor. Series 6 starts abruptly with John in The Hague .
After all these years surely the censorship can be lifted????
VERY Disappointed !!!!

The series was really getting meaty then the network had to buckle to the censors because the science was flawed. Too bad they didn't get a chance to correct some of the errors and still come up with an intelligent continuing drama. It would have been interesting to see the judge wrestle with decisions based on erroneous data. (The missing episodes can be found on YouTube so that the continuity isn't totally lost.) Otherwise this is such good, intelligent drama offering considerable insight into the workings of the British legal system, with of course the spice of the humans' lives. Okay so the "snogging" is getting a little bit more unbelievable maybe, but Martin Shaw...., he's still got it, and the depicted relationships are really well written and portrayed by this excellent cast.

This DVD only includes 4 of the 6 episodes. After much research I was able to find episodes 5 and 6. I can honestly see no reason for them being excluded - especially as the topics continue in the story line for season 6. Shame on BBC

Missing, censored episodes about the alleged side effects of vaccinations left us in the dark about how the impending marriage between Jo Mills and Mark fell apart. Couldn't find much of synopsis online to fill in the blanks, either. BBC should have redone the 2 offensive (probably to the government and big pharma only) to remove the parts that concerned them, but maintained the story line about the dissolving romance. We have no idea why or how the relationship fizzled!

I have enjoyed every season of Judge John Deed and can only say that the episodes keep getting better and better. My only disappointment was that the episodes ended and I was hoping for more. I was able to pre order season six and am looking forward to more of the predicaments of Judge Deed, his daughter, and his on again-off again relationships. I was disappointed that there were not more episodes in the series (5). If they were withheld for political reasons, censorship, or copyrights issues, than it is a disappointment. In any case, the episodes that are available with the series are first rate !

I am a great fan of this series, although it must be admitted that the court room procedure displayed is pretty far removed from reality. Nevertheless, the plotting is good and the characters well portrayed with an intiguing mixture of sympathetic victims and villainous establishment figures. Martin Shaw's character is multi-faceted, though slightly less believable in his amorous adventures. Donald Sinden's cameo roles are a joy to watch.

While it is best if the series is watched from the beginning, each episode is sufficiently complete in itself.

I love the Judge Deed series and am looking forward to the release of Series 6. I was hoping that Series 5 (episode 1) would've cleared up some of the loose ends from the final episode of the previous series. For instance, they could have included a scene or two about Jo's recuperation from the car accident and what, if any, legal punishment Sir Tim Listfield's henchman received for trying to kill John Deed. Jo's sudden "rethinking" her feelings for John is interesting, but it is not fully realized. Does she truly believe John is incapable of loving just her? Does she really love Mark, or is he just a "means to an end" for her to get closer to her former foster son Michael? These loose ends are a little frustrating for devoted viewers.
The courtroom dramas are very well done and compelling. Judge Dee's daughter and ex-wife, Charlie and George, are given some great courtroom time, too. It should also be noted that Rita "Coop" Cooper's character develops more in Series 5, allowing viewers to get a glimpse behind her sometimes far away gazes and underlyong sadness.
Overall, a must-see for anyone who has followed the previous 4 series. It was great, but I think it could've been just a little bit better.
