Actor Martin Shaw plays the title character in the legal drama, ‘Judge John Deed.’

Judges have a long-standing passion for upholding the law and protecting the public they swore to protect. But not all have the same level of commitment to speaking out against the petty rules and bureaucracy that don’t allow them to properly serve justice as the title character on the legal drama, ‘Judge John Deed.’ The series, which was created by G.F. Newman, stars Martin Shaw as the eponymous protagonist, Mr. Justice Deed, a High Court judge who seeks real justice in the cases he presides over.

Repeats of the British television series, which originally premiered on BBC One between 2001-2007, are not now being broadcast on the Drama channel on Filmon TV. The next episode of ‘Judge John Deed’ is set to stream on Filmon tonight at 3:00-5:00pm local time. It can be watched live, or recorded and watched at a later time.

The third episode of Series 5, which is titled ‘Lost Youth,’ was written by Steve Kelly, and directed by Newman. In the episode, Deed is involved in a legal battle between parents and doctors over whether a seriously ill baby should be resuscitated.
