DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

IDON’T know – is a big ‘‘ SUR­PRISE!’’ what you want when you’re just back in the of­fice af­ter three months off be­cause of a stab­bing? Which, given it was ad­min­is­tered in your home by a life-long fam­ily friend, may have also been quite the SUR­PRISE!

Still, Janet – the DC Scott part of the equa­tion here – is a to­tal pro, or else she came back to work far too soon. Prob­a­bly the sec­ond one, but ei­ther way she han­dles this id­i­otic party with som­nam­bu­lant aplomb.

And now the cops/shrink com­bi­na­tion han­dling the Ge­off Hast­ings case – said nut­ter who stabbed her – have de­cided only Janet (Les­ley Sharp) can get out of him just how many women he dis­patched over the years. Ge­nius idea, isn’t it?

Ge­off Hast­ings, if we asked his neigh­bours, would’ve been po­lite and kept to him­self. I watched that episode where we met Ge­off and I can’t re­mem­ber now, but I’m pretty sure I had to stop my­self from telling you he was the killer.

Based on the golden rule of screen pro­duc­tion that says the high­est paid guest star is the mur­derer.

Ge­off was played by that
