Episode Summary

Someone You Know
Jane has a new boyfriend whose passion is glider flying - something Jane is rather nervous about. However, she is called away to work on the case of a serial killer who murders women who are having affairs. The killer leaves a message scrawled in blood on a mirror, "Help me, Jane." The police think he must be one of Jane's patients, but Jane is not so sure. To complicate matters, Jane's boyfriend is an ex-patient and tries to pressurise Jane into deleting his file from her computer. One of the female detectives is having trouble with this case. Jane recognises her symptoms and tries to help, but something buried deep in her past has been re-awakened. Investigating further, Jane discovers that her mother is also called Jane. Jane discovers that the police have been following her and when one of her more vulnerable patients ends up in hospital as a result, she finds herself pressurised from all sides to uncover the killer.moreless

  • Unfaithful married women are being murdered and Jane is having problems of her own with yet another new boyfriend who is a former patient.

    A young married woman is murdered in her own home; the first of several. At one crime scene, a message "help me, Jane" is left behind by the killer. For some unfathomable reason, it is quickly deduced that the 'Jane' in question must be Dr. Jane Halifax (Rebecca Gibney) and that the killer must either be somebody she knows, perhaps a patient?

    Jane's own life is complicated by her relationship with a former patient who feels himself to be completely cured and tries to pressure her into deleting his olkd file from her computer, which would be a breach of ethics. Meanwhile, the body count is growing and Jane begins to wonder whether it MIGHT be her for whom the killer is leaving messages.

    Enter the charming but eccentric taxi driver Alex Goodson, (Gary McDonald) a former patient of Jane's himself, who is determined that the 20th century should be forsaken for the calmer, gentler era of the past. To this end, he lives, breathes and thinks as though this were true. He is convinced that time travel is possible and that very soon, everyone will be easily able to step back in time to the place where he, Alex, finds the most comfort and peace.

    Police Officer Helen Hunt (Sonia Todd) is behaving erratically while investigating the case and Jane, thinking that she knows why, tries to assist her, but is firmly rebuffed. Meanwhile, the pressure is on for Jane and the police to solve the case but with so many of the people involved distracted by personal issues, is this even a possibility?

    A good episode and more "eerie" than most in the series. Along with the usual flawless performance by Rebecca Gibney, Sonia Todd and Gary McDonald give excellent backup and make the story one worth watching (and trying to figure out) right until the credits roll.moreless
