  • A really good episode where stalker gal goes wacked out crazy on Dempsey!

    This one was a really good episode of the show. Starts off good too with Dempsey almost getting shot and an innocent bystander gets shot instead. The wife of the man that got shot is played by none other than the woman who played Sarah Jane Smith from Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures. I was first thinking she was going to be the one to stalk Dempsey but I was wrong. A bartender that serves drinks at a pub that Dempsey is a regular at ends up being the stalker. She starts by threatening his life, to breaking in his house and trying on his robe and pretending to be his girlfriend to his neighbor. Later, she tries to stab Makepeace when she thinks Makepeace is flirting with Dempsey. It all ends with a rooftop confrontation where the stalker falls to her death because Dempsey can't hold onto her when she go over. One of the better episodes in a show that's like a roller coaster in it's up and downs of episodes.moreless
  • Dempsey gets stalked and has to say sweet things to Makepeace to draw out the stalker.

    Definitely one of my favourite episodes. I love the interactions between Dempsey and Makepeace in his apartment. I know they were just playing, but I think we are meant to believe he really feels that way about her.

    I also found the scenes with the stalker real suspenseful. Kudos for having a female stalker, at the time probably rather unusual.
