: Judge John Deed: Rough Justice

The first in a new four-part legal drama series written and produced by G.F. Newman, starring Martin Shaw as the eponymous judge and Jenny Seagrove as his protegee.
Deed presides over a rape case in which Jo Mills is the prosecutor, and angers the Lord Chancellor's department with his judgement in a wife-beating case.
Director Mary McMurray (S) (W)

Judge John Deed (Martin Shaw) brings a decidedly maverick style as well as plenty of sex to his chambers
Judge John Deed
8.30pm BBC1 Judge John Deed must be every Home Secretary's dream. Not only is he a judge, but he also acts as a prosecutor. What a novel way of reducing lengthy trials.
Of course, he doesn't do both jobs officially, because that isn't allowed. He's just that type of man. Committed, scornful of cant and hypocrisy, constantly bucking against authority. To sum up, he's a maverick. (We've had maverick police, maverick doctors, maverick pathologists, maverick harbourmasters. Why not a maverick judge?) Judge John Deed (Martin Shaw) is also athletically sexy, with a penchant for well bred women. He meets the terrifyingly posh Lady Francesca Rochester (Jemma Redgrave) in a bar and has propositioned her before the bubbles in her gin and tonic go flat.
But he never lets sex get in the way of his work because he has sex at work, the naughty thing. Yes, right there on his desk in chambers. But it's all right, because he's just made a colossal breakthrough in a case he's trying. And a man has to celebrate somehow.
So, as you can tell, much of judge John Deed, which starts a new series tonight after a pilot last year, is great fun in a swashbuckling kind of way, though you can't help but feel that this isn't its intention. There are far too many cumbersome comments on the criminal justice system for that.
The first episode sees Deed trying a couple of contentious cases while having to deal with the establishment, which is breathing down his neck to free a wife-abuser who happens to be a well placed police informer.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
