Judge John Deed: Season Six

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reasons for bringing him to trial, meanwhile, back in the UK, a scandal involving pharmaceutical companies and withdrawn legal aid leads right to the heart of the Government.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

The television marketers have chopped up the format but the quality of the writing struggles mightily to right the wrongs. It appears this will be the last of the judge and we'll just have to imagine the rest of their lives. The producers were always clever enough to end each series as if were final, but leave us with the hope of meeting up with the characters again. That makes it all in all satisfying I suppose. And such a stellar cast of actors this age is of course difficult to hold together. It was sure good while it lasted though. I'll think back on these characters with fondness for a long time and hope that John Deed keeps rolling those sleeves above the elbows and Jo and he keep on battling for righteousness.

I love most British productions and this is one of them. It's the last of the series, and as I had all the rest of the series, I bought it, and enjoyed it. This series was very well done, and most of the problems Deed had to deal with run a close parallel to our own problems in this country. I found that the problems were brought forward and explained more fully in this series. All of the actors are fantastic and show up in other British productions. I recommend this product to anyone who loves politics and the law mixed lightly with romance.

We have enjoyed each season of Judge Deed and we are sorry that there are no more to this series. The characters were well drawn and remained true to themselves; unfortunately, so did Judge Deed in his womanizing and love of taking on large corporate miscreants bent on 'misdeeds'

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.
