Judge John Deed: Duty of Care (S1EP2 BBC-1 3 Dec 2001, with Donald Sinden)



Duty of Care: Deed presides over the case of a young man’s death on a building site, in which the well-connected construction company boss is trying to lay the blame on his employees. Deed’s determination to get at the truth is strangely unwelcome to the Lord Chancellor’s department. At the same time, Charlie Deed is getting herself into hot water by ‘liberating’ a dog from a laboratory in the name of animal rights. With the police hot on her trail, Charlie adroitly dumps the dog on Deed and a blackmailer gets to work.
