Deed must deal with corruption within the jury, the suspected murder of a barrister, and a case connected to a lucrative government deal with a foreign country during which finalizing the contract seems to some more important than seeing justice is done. Subsequent episodes raise other important questions of justice: a man with the mental age of 13 on trial for murder; the uncovering of a massive mortgage fraud perpetrated by lawyers with the connivance of a judge; and more.

As a judge John Deed is brilliant, the legal issues and cases he deals with are captivating and interesting, and he himself is a very charming and attractive fellow. But in his private life he is a philanderer and a frequent breaker of ethics if not the law itself, and we got tired of his silly antics. The parts dealing with British law, the common law, and the structure of the British justice system are enlightening, and were probably written by lawyers and legal experts. But the parts dealing with his private life and his perpetual inability to relate to his friends - and especially women - were also written by lawyers and legal experts. There you have it, the crux of the dilemma so to speak......

When the writer of Judge John Deed (G.F. Newman) gets it right there's not much else that's better tele-drama around. This season's episode "Nobody's Fool" played a little heavy on that drama (not an unusual thing for Judge John Deed) and judicial manipulation of proceedings. But the other episodes were well done and I found the last episode, "Everyone's Child" to be particularly powerful and thought-provoking.

Once again Judge John Deed is entangled in judicial issues, internal politics and personal turmoil. Season two consists of four intriguing episodes with interesting cases and outcomes. There are no easy answers with issues that include murder, corruption and the right to die. This series provides an interesting view of the English legal system.
