  • Sydney and Nigel try to help Sydney's old boyfriend recover a relic before he dies.

    7.0
    Allan - Sydney's old boyfriend - asks for help to recover the Cross of Tau - so he can get the antidote for the virus that a collector (Chabot) has given him. Allan will die in 12 hours. Chabot is also dying and needs the relic to recover. However, Chabot's son is only interested in saving his father if the old man will give him his fortune. Sydney, Allan and Nigel rush to a ruin where they find a rosary cross. But another infected relic hunter (Van Gelden) attacks them, shoots Allan and runs off with the rosary. They bandage Allan's wound and rush off to a historical building - where they search for clues. Van Gelden appears and with the virus affecting him badly, he threatens them again but Nigel pushes him over the balcony and he dies. Sydney and Nigel retrieve the rosary cross, solve a puzzle in the floor and find the relic. But Allan - fearing time has run out - leaves them and returns to Chabot's home. Sydney and Nigel follow him and find a dead body and a shootout in progress between Allan and the son. Sydney exposes the Cross to the son - and he touches the relic and is consumed. Allan then takes the antidote and is saved.



    The main story about the Cross had great potential. But the side-story about mysterious viruses and specific deadlines seems artificial. In addition, Allan - played by Peter O'Brien (who also appeared in Australia's Neighbours) never appears ill at any time in the story. However, the chemistry between Sydney and Allan helps redeem the story a little bit. And the exterior scenes are great once again. This is also Lindy Booth's last episode as Claudia. In this story she plays an important part relaying information to Sydney and Nigel as they look for the Cross - but in many other stories, her character was used ineffectively.moreless
