  • Dr.Jane Halifax is asked to do a medical review of an ex policeman who has been behaving strangely.

    5.0
    Ex police officer Laurie Downes (Andy Anderson) is in trouble for posing as an active officer and other relatively minor offences. While agreeing that Downes is acting oddly, Jane (Rebecca Gibney) doesn't feel that he is in any way dangerous and believes it is safe to release him on bail. As she spends more time with him, she feels that he is beginning to unravel and keeps a close eye on him. His daughter and son-in-law have had enough of him and when Jane finds that the reason for his behaviour is that he is on a personal crusade to catch two rapist who killed his girlfriend.



    As Laurie continues his hunt, Jane is facing a medical problem when a Pap smear shows that she needs minor surgery for irregular cells. Afterwards, Laurie takes it upon himself to assist her and she is very grateful for his kindness, but her gratitude turns to alarm and fear for her own safety when one of the rapists Laurie is seeking is murdered and everyone believes him to be responsible for the crime.



    This was a very dull beginning to the fifth season of the show. The script was lacklustre and predictable, which is not the way it usually is with the writers of this series. Regular fans may enjoy it, particularly as several of the guest cast members are well known from other long-running television shows, but I feel it could have been much better.moreless
