    To get away from the hectic life of a busy city psychiatrist, Jane Halifax (Rebecca Gibney) decides to temporarily live on a houseboat and write another book. (She has previously written several.) She is, therefore, not overly ethusiastic when her old friend Abe Levin (Ross Williams) asks her if she will help him assess Daniel Viney (Guy Pearce) a former patient who has been accused of the murder of his parents.

    Finally, Jane agrees to do the assessment of Matthew to see if she believes him capable of the crime or fit to plead. Jane hopes that she can do the assessment quickly and get back to her houseboat but things become more complicated when Daniel's identical twin brother, Richard,(also played by Guy Pearce) turns up, suave and sophisticated, and announces that he has been having dreams in which he sees himself as having committed the crime, which is impossible because he was nowhere near at the time.

    Everything becomes far more complicated as she finds herself looking into the lives of not one, but two brothers, the problem is, how does she work out which one committed the crime?

    An excellent episode and superb performances by both Pearce and Gibney. All crime/drama fans must watch this one!moreless
