DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday - BLACK­OUT, SBS One, 8.30pm

DANIEL is a se­ri­ous drunk. He’s on the Manch­ester coun­cil and up to some­thing dodgy in­volv­ing ten­ders with a de­vel­oper (David Hay — Mike Walker from Trial & Retri­bu­tion) and hav­ing sex with a dan­ger­ous woman who isn’t Dervla Kir­wan, who plays his purse-lipped wife Alex. His be­hav­iour causes him to miss his teenage daugh­ter’s dance recital. But then some­thing hap­pens. Or two things. One in­volves a ma­jor al­co­holic black­out. The other is a pub­lic act of im­mense courage and sud­denly Daniel (Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston) looks like a rock star.
