  • Mistaken Identity!

    While its true that Jake seems a bit of a loser in his personal life, and he is, he is not the brother who deserves the bad reputation as the black sheep of the Doyle family. His "successful" Toronto brother who is a lawyer (that should be your first clue!) is something of a scoundrel, as boys from away can be...

    Methinks Christian will get his and prove once and for all that Jake is actually the responsible one...and gawd help St. John's!

    But first there is a missing horse tied up with a missing groom who's bride was delivered his missing ring finger on their wedding day. Meanwhile, buddy at the butcher is feeding the horse on instruction from a voice on the phone and thinking nothing of it...

    Did I say I liked the comedy in Doyle? Yes I did say that, and I do enjoy the witty reparte that can and does rival the likes of NCIS, Bones and Castle, but I am coming to appreciate the dramatic component of this show more each time I watch.

    And Allan Hawco is a damn fine actor!
