DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Sunday - THE MYS­TERY OF A HAN­SOM CAB, ABC1, 8.30pm

MADGE loves Brian but her fa­ther is sud­denly steer­ing her to­wards a boor­ish English ham named Ol­lie Whyte (Brett Climo), who is mur­dered in Queens­berry St, North Mel­bourne in the first few min­utes. Flashback a fort­night to Ol­lie, fresh off the boat, at a wel­come din­ner with dad (John Wa­ters) and Madge, where we get to meet most of the sus­pects. This looks gor­geous but lacks sparkle. The story just isn’t that in­ter­est­ing. A lot of good ac­tors (Shane Ja­cob­son and Felix Wil­liamson), but also a fair amount of over-act­ing. Even the killer is a ma­jor let­down.
