Despite the red robe and wig, Judge John Deed is no average high court judge. Good-looking, fit and fifty-something, he has a rakish charm that belies his sharp intellect.

This judge’s individual approach too often flies in the face of convention for his own good as he determinedly avoids the traditionalism the system tries to force upon him.
