Product Description

Written by Peter Morgan (The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queen), The Jury is a compelling, character based drama series which focuses on the everyday people who find themselves at the centre of one of the most controversial criminal re-trials of their time.

Focusing on the retrial of a man sentenced for the murder of three women--all killed following internet dates. A key piece of evidence was deliberately ignored by the CPS, possibly because the police were under pressure for a quick conviction and blackmail was being used over a senior person involved with the investigation who was having an affair. Ultimately, we will see the man acquitted but it will be an "imperfect, messy, human triumph for the jury by acquitting the man".

Gripping, dark and emotionally charged as jurors are forced to face their prejudices as they come to grips with the complexities and unwanted attention of being a key player in such a high profile Old Bailey trial.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Enjoyed 11 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
The series 'The Jury' is a drama about the members of a jury of a triple murder trial. It shows their experience of being a member of the jury from the moment when they received the letter to when the foreman calls out the verdict. Some of the jury members include a boy with asbergers syndrome, a teacher and a man who wishes to become a U.S citizen.

I really enjoyed this series as it provides a refreshing approach to the usual trial dramas where only the barristers and the case are followed. Although it does not show every single member of the jury in the same detail, you still find out lots about the individuals whilst following in the mornings and during their lunch breaks.

I would highly recommend this series to anyone wishing to watch a good drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good courtroom drama 30 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A bunch of odd characters thrown together on a jury and they all have a chance to stand out. Julie Walters is strong and I don't mind her playing herself...again. A good story at a good price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not fulfil its promise 3 May 2014
By MaggieC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This excellent cast and very promising start, indicating the benefit of a jury system which can bring together so many different people to decide on a case, did not deliver in the end because the story lines petered out into something predictable and pedestrian. It's quite long and, as a result, only worth watching if you have nothing better to do. Even Julie Walters' character seemed wooden at times, and nothing she could do with the lines given to her could redeem it. Perhaps it tried to deal with too many issues, because it ended up pursuing none in a satisfactory way.

1.0 out of 5 stars most disappointing drama of the year 16 Nov 2011
By Jamie B
Format:DVD
Well-acted, and with an exemplary cast, seldom has so much talent been wasted on such a dismal and disappointing drama.

The story starts strongly but with each successive episode seems to deliver less, until the story limps home to an unsatisfying (and predictable) ending. This is a preachy and didactive piece, and fashions its narrative in an unconvincing way to suit the message it is so desperate to hammer home. Grafted onto the central themes are also some 'pro-Life' sermonising, a bit of gratuitous flag-waving and Yank-bashing, and some dodgy religious sentiments.

I was also not sure that the author understood the niceties of our legal system. At a pivotal point in the jury's deliberations, one of the (supposedly) more intelligent jurors announced that surely the point of sending the case for retrial was so that the defendant could be found innocent, and that this was obviously what the authorities wanted. Now, maybe I'm mistaken, but surely the opposite is true. Appeal court judges have the power to quash a conviction; but if a case is sent for retrial this means the Crown Prosecution Service think the defendant still has a serious case to answer.

I can't write any more without disclosing the plot, but anyone who loves intelligent and well-crafted drama should give this a miss. It is certainly not a patch on two of ITV's previous five-nighters, both incidentally written by Anthony Horowitz, 'Collision', and 'Injustice'. If you've seen neither, buy them instead!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story and overall entertaining ! 10 Sep 2014
Format:DVD
Despite the length and the seemingly slow dialogue and story (at times); the Jury delievered a very good story that was well acted and superbly produced ! As an American viewing the English Justice System, I find the courtroom drama very entertaining and interesting. The subtle and not so subtle banter between the judge and lawyers enhances the scenes and story to the fullest ! I have enjoyed several other English courtroom shows: Judge Deed, Silk, and most recently North Square, but this story is unique as it is an examination and introspective look at the Jury members. I liked it !

Another brilliant performance from Julie Walters.A very realistic drama that was totally believeable.As a TV drama spread over 5 nights you may have expected it to drag out a little, but far from it , I found it great viewing.
