Episode Summary

EDIT
Duty of Care
AIRED:
Deed presides over the case of a young man's death on a building site, in which the well-connected construction company boss is trying to lay the blame on his employees. Deed's determination to get at the truth is strangely unwelcome to the Lord Chancellor's department. At the same time, Charlie Deed is getting herself into hot water by 'liberating' a dog from a laboratory in the name of animal rights. With the police hot on her trail, Charlie adroitly dumps the dog on Deed and a blackmailer gets to work.moreless

  • When Mr. Justice Deed presides over the trial of a man accused of being responsible for the death of a worker on a building site, he is surprised at the interest in the case taken by the Lord Chancellor's Department.moreless

    9.0
    A young man's death on a building site is the subject of a case being heard by Judge Deed. It is the contention of the prosecution that the owner of the site directly contributed to the death by having an unsafe work environment but the defense says that the wealthy man on trial was not in any way to blame and that the boy's death was nothing more than a tragic accident.



    As far as the judge is concerned, this case is fairly routine, if very tragic, so he is surprised when the Lord Chancellor's Department takes a very close and active interest in it? Could it be that the defendant has high-powered political connections?



    Meanwhile, while debating this matter, the judge's daughter, Charlie (Charlotte) presents him with a dog she has rescued from a laboratory where she insists animal cruelty is taking place.



    As usual, an excellent episode with great work by the enigmatic Martin Shaw and a fine supporting cast.moreless
