About this deal

An MI5 informant is on trial for causing grievous bodily harm to his wife and Deed is pressured by the Lord Chancellor's Department and Police Commissioner Row Colemore to release the man, but Deed refuses without investigating the matter further. He conducts a Newton hearing, hearing evidence and acting as his own jury. This causes a clash with Sir Ian Rochester of the LCD (with whose wife Deed is having an affair). Deed also sits on the case of date rape against three men. It was eventually found to have breached impartiality guidelines, with the BBC undertaking not to repeat it, syndicate it worldwide or release it on DVD. Meanwhile, Rufus Barron provides evidence that the Home Secretary accepted a bribe on a defence contract. But when the evidence goes missing Neil Haughton insists Deed is impeached... Episode 6 - Popular Appeal

I agree with you completely. I'm not sure some people realise just how dangerous measles can be. The son of a friend of mine had measles when he was young - before vaccination was available. Although he recovered with no obvious side effects, he died when he was 19 from what proved to be complications caused by childhood measles. Claridge, Brian (2006).

Imagine if, during the 70's, the BBC had broadcast a drama that was sympathetic towards the IRA and its aims. It would still be a fictional drama, but imagine the outcry.

Meanwhile, Michael's real father turns up from South Africa, ending Jo's hopes of adoption. Jo starts seeing him, sending John into a jealous rage. He foolishly starts an affair with a Claimant. When Jo discovers, she decides to move to South Africa, Deed must move heaven and earth to stop her... Episode 4 - Defence Of The Realm

It's just that it makes me think about to what extent content will be controlled, even if that control may be benign and sometimes for what a channel believes to be in the best interests of the public. 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 Mr Justice 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 QC, 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 ( Inspector George Gently), 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. a b "Editorial Complaints Unit - Quarterly Report, July - September 2006" (PDF). bbc.co.uk. BBC. p.2 . Retrieved 31 January 2015.
