Judge John Deed

Series 5 - 1. Hard-Gating


About this programme

1/6. A black man is murdered in a jail cell by a confirmed racist - a crime the prison service blames on overcrowding. However, the judge's probing reveals the institution wasn't operating at full capacity. A drink-driving appeal puts the bench at loggerheads, and Jo distances herself from her former lover. With Donald Sinden and Jenny Seagrove.
