The topic of this seminary is the forth episode in second season of well known British legal drama Judge John Deed. A legal drama or a courtroom drama is a subgenre of dramatic fiction. Law enforcement, crime, detective-based mystery solving, lawyer work, civil litigation, etc., are all possible focuses of legal dramas. Common subgenres of legal dramas include detective dramas, police dramas, courtroom dramas, legal thrillers, etc. Legal dramas appear in many forms of media, including novels, plays, television shows, and films.
Judge John Deed is the longest-running legal drama ever produced by the BBC, but it is also one of the more eccentric examples of the genre. It offers a myriad of conflicting personal, commercial and political agendas against the background of a frequently inefficient and old-fashioned legal establishment but still insists, through its title character, that the system is ultimately a force for good. Martin Shaw plays a High Court Judge of working-class origins who, although he bucks the system at every opportunity, is in fact deeply entrenched within it, since practically his entire family and all of his friends practice law.
1. Judge John Deed

Judge John Deed is a British legal drama television series produced by the BBC in association with One-Eyed Dog for BBC One. It was created by G.F. Newman and stars Martin Shaw as Sir John Deed, a High Court judge who tries to seek real justice in the cases before him. It also stars Jenny Seagrove as the barrister Jo Mills, frequently the object of Deed’s desire. A pilot episode was broadcast on 9 January 2001, followed by the first full series on 26 November 2001. The sixth and last series concluded on 18 January 2007. The programme then went on an indefinite break after Shaw became involved in another television programme, and he and Seagrove expressed a wish for the format of the series to change before they filmed new episodes. By 2009, the series had officially been cancelled.
