Episode Summary

EDIT
One Angry Man
AIRED:
Deed's superiors want him out of the way, and they arrange for him to be called for jury service on a case which will not be over quickly - a murder trial. In court, a teenage nanny from the Ukraine is accused of killing Baby Jonathan by shaking him, which she denies. As a juryman, Deed wants to see more medical evidence. Then he discovers a cross-over with a case of Jo's, in which she has evidence that the effects of the MMR vaccine could have led to Baby Jonathan's death. Meanwhile, Marc Thompson is asked to travel to South Africa, to give evidence about its child vaccination programme - and Jo begins to have doubts about marrying him. After quarrelling with Marc, she starts to see Deed again. But then she also quarrels with Deed, who still seems to have another woman in his life - one of his fellow judges.moreless

      • Deed: What I want to hear is that you're calling off this ridiculous marriage.
        Jo: I've finally found someone who truly loves me.
        Deed: I truly love you.
        Jo: Sure - so long as I don't mind standing in line!

      • The episode title, One Angry Man, is an allusion to the movie Twelve Angry Men (1957), starring Henry Fonda, which is also about a jury in a murder trial. In the movie, the evidence against the accused seemed to most of the jury to be overwhelming, but in fact the case is deeply flawed.

        Another parallel is that in the movie the accused is a Puerto Rican teenager living in the U.S., while in this episode of Judge John Deed the accused is a Ukrainian teenager living in the U.K.

        The 'one angry man' here seems to be Deed himself.
