Judge John Deed: Rough Justice (S1EP1 BBC-1 26 Nov 2001, with Jemma Redgrave)



Rough Justice: A charismatic MI5 informer appears in Deed’s court charged with battering his wife, and the judge comes under pressure from on high to let him off, as he is an important source of information about ‘The Real IRA’. In a second case, three men are accused of using Rohypnol to carry out a date rape, and a pushy young defence counsel rubs the judge up the wrong way.Outside court, Deed flirts with Francesca, a publisher who is married to his antagonist Ian Rochester: their resulting short affair is caught on camera, and a jealous husband is quickly looking for revenge.
