Product description

Product Description

Hard-hitting TV drama examining the balance of race relations in contemporary Britain. A quiet 15-year-old Sikh boy has been charged with the murder of a classmate in a court case which has become headline news. The nation eagerly awaits the verdict, and as the twelve jurors meet to make their decision, they feel the weight of expectation placed upon them, and have to deal with various threats and intimidations as they do their best to arrive at a just conclusion.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the most impressive series to appear on British television for a long time, The Jury is an invigorating shot in the arm for the crime genre. The premise is simple, focusing on the one part of the legal process that has hitherto been largely ignored: the jury. By concentrating on seven of the 12--their home lives and the pressure that such an undertaking places on them--this six-part series brings the courtroom action into sharper focus. The series revolves around the unfolding (and timely) trial of a young Sikh schoolboy accused of a racially motivated murder. Expertly steered by Derek Jacobi and Anthony Sher as the opposing lawyers, and allowed to develop over five-plus hours of screen time, the twists and turns of the case are riveting, and the outcome impossible to predict.

The seven interconnecting stories of the jurors are equally enthralling and would be more than enough to sustain most series on their own. Combine them with the courtroom action and you have a superb legal drama. But the depth of characterisation and quality of performance from all the cast is what gives The Jury its true edge. And that’s what will ensure repeated viewing even after the initial suspense of the verdict has subsided. --Phil Udell

I saw this TV mini a few years ago when it was first broadcast. It has an excellent script, stellar cast, and high-quality production values. All the stories of the jurors are complex and real, things don't all get resolved or not the way you expect, and you still don't ever know for sure if the boy is guilty or not, even after the jury reaches its verdict. There are brilliant performances from everyone. People who've only seen Gerry Butler swinging a sword or screaming "tonight we dine in hell!" in leather underpants will be pleasantly surprised by his emotional turn as a recovering alcoholic who makes his first tentative foray into a relationship with a married fellow juror. Don't know her name, but the actress is sublime as the tortured wife of an emotionally and physically crippled man who is suffocating her with his possessiveness and suspicion. She welcomes the freedom that jury duty provides and is like a trembling flower blossoming. I particularly liked Michael Maloney's battles with his in-laws. He is fairly vibrating with intensity in his battle of wills with his father-in-law.

You won't be disappointed.

With six episodes this superb courtroom drama is a true old fashioned serial, and how the extra time available pays off.
This is an intense drama that never gets over the top, it comprises the racial tensions created by the trial of a sixteen year old Sikh accused of murdering a white boy from his school, The families are contrasted with the accused Sikh’s family shocked and dignified, the murdered boys father and brothers taking a vengeful racist attitude amidst the fathers grief for his murdered son.
The story also concentrates on six of the jurors, delving into their private lives and fears, failing marriages and victims of scams, an alcoholic released from re-hab the morning of the trial, a trainee catholic priest going through a period of extreme self doubt. Among the large cast are many familiars of TV serials and dramas over the years all acting well and for me this added considerably to the pleasure.
David Jacobi is outstanding as the defending council and the courtroom scenes are gripping. Outstanding screen play, good direction with well controlled tension and pace provide an involving drama that can be viewed many times.

"The Jury" was/is a fantastic story of a Sikh boy who is accused of a race-related murder...Crime writing like this has not been seen for a very long while, it is of such a high standard and had me on the edge of my seat the whole series through. I saw it through 1st of all on the television and i was so impressed that i just had to buy the video set of it when it came out...If you like an EXCELLENT court drama then this is the series for you to see. Derek Jacobi does an excellent justice to this series and the storyline is just fantastic...

I have only watched the first tape of The Jury, but i have found it very watchable. I have to admit that is not something i would normally watch, the only reason i bought it was to help complete my task of watching everything with Gerard Butler in. Although he is in it as a juror he has a lot of problems to contend with. He is not alone in a complicated life, all of the jury have many stories to tell which can make it quite hard to keep up with who's doing what and why. Looking forward to finding out what really happened and whatever the out come it was certainly worth watching.

This passes a few hours agreeably enough, but, watching it now (Nov 2015), 14 years after it was broadcast and 8+ years after most of the glowing reviews on this site were posted, I wonder whether the years have been unkind. To me, the script seemed somewhat overwrought, the characters stereotypical, the acting (by a top-drawer cast) and directing by-the-numbers. Worst of all, it's inauthentic. I can't say what would be permissable in the kind of courtrooms My Cousin Vinny is liable to appear before, but in the UK, and in big-city USA, lawyers are not allowed to ask leading questions. They are not allowed to throw grimaces at the jury expressing their disdain, disbelief, shock, horror or whatever emotion at the testimony being heard. They are not allowed to descend into speechifying when they should be asking questions. And they are not allowed to ask an important question and then cut the witness off in mid-reply or even refuse to let him answer at all, thereby leaving a deafening silence hovering in the air for jury-members to interpret however they are inclined. But, of course, in nine out of ten courtroom dramas, as in The Jury, these transgressions occur all the time. (And surely, in real life, someone would have told Derek Jacobi to straighten his wig?!)
