COLIN VICKERY OUT OF THE BOX
EMMY and Golden Globe winning actress Christine Lahti (pictured) brings some prestige to Hawaii Five-O this week. The former Chicago Hope star has a recurring role as Doris McGarrett, the estranged mother of Steve McGarrett, in the third series of the crime reboot. Doris pays a surprise visit to Steve (Aussie Alex O’Loughlin). While Steve tries to get his head around his mum’s return, he has to investigate the death of a polo player. Watching Lahti, O’Loughlin and co-star Scott Caan spark in scenes is a delight. Five-O is the first time Lahti has handled a gun in her 30-year acting career.
