  • With Tom shot by the paranoid gunman, the Blue Heelers are even more determined to track down the escaped prisoners who seem to be behind the whole explosion of recent events. A great conclusion to this classic two-parter...moreless

    Well, after the spectacular, multi-stranded events of Part 1, I was slightly worried if Part 2 could live up to the opening half and wrap things up satisfactorily. I was pleased to find that it did.



    The climax of the story, of Maggie – in the midst of considering leaving the job – capturing the head of the criminals single-handedly, is great. I also love the relationship between Maggie and Tom that has developed through the second season; Maggie was one of the first to be there for Tom after his wife Nell was killed, and she always turns to him for advice; almost like a father-daughter relationship.



    The one niggle I did find, was that I didn't personally find it that easy to follow just why the criminals behind the whole mess of affairs, carried out some of their actions; what was their motive? No doubt the explanations were in there somewhere, but there was so much packed in, that personally I found it a bit hard to fathom. But that didn't matter, as there are so many great happenings in this story that I could forgive that one gripe.



    Then there is the romance between Adam and Chris, after they get a bit tipsy after the case is finally solved. I knew of this romance already, as I started regularly watching 'Blue Heelers' (when it was shown on my local ITV region on Monday afternoons way back when) not long after this point, but even so, it is fun to see how it comes about.



    All-in-all, this is a top-notch BH story, and surely one of the series classics. I give it a solid, top scoring 10 out of 10.moreless
