Episode Summary

EDIT
Political Expediency
AIRED:

After a call girl is found dead in a skip, an Arab sheikh's chauffeur is charged with killing her, but the evidence points to the sheikh himself being involved in the murder. Unfortunately for Deed, the Arab ruler was in London to place a huge order with a British aircraft manufacturer, and pressure is piled on Deed by the British government, as well as by the sheikh's own.

The plot thickens when counsel for the prosecution is also killed and Deed's lover, Jo Mills, takes over the case, and when he hears that Georgina Channing, his former wife, is engaged to marry Neil Haughton, the government minister fighting for the aeroplane order. Before long, witnesses disappear and the jury is being interfered with - by the British Government, no less.

And then Deed gets an offer they think he can't refuse, when appointment as an Appeal Court judge is dangled before him.

  • Judge Deed is caught in a very tangled web when a call girl is found murdered and dumped in a rubbish skip.

    9.0
    Mr. Justice Deed is to hear the case of the driver of a powerful and wealthy Arab sheikh who is accused of murdering a prostitute and then dumping her body. The case is anything but cut and dried when it is found that the sheikh is involved in a massive contract with the British Government and that it's possible that the sheikh himself and not his driver is the killer.



    It seems that everyone is trying to get Deed to just let the case go away - and by definition, both the sheikh and his driver. More pressure is put on him when the prosecutor is murdered and Jo Mills takes over. Deed, still in love with Jo after a romance many years ago, is far from pleased by this development but has other things on his mind when the dream job of his career, that of a judge on the Court of Appeal is offered to him - if the case goes the way the government wishes it to, of course.



    Fantastic drama. A great episode. Don't miss it.moreless
