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?]]>

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

I love this series. I am beyond miffed that Episodes 5 and 6 of Season 5 have been omitted from this and all DVD's, even British, of this season. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Trixie Tiger
