DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday - LAW & OR­DER: SVU, Chan­nel 10, 9.30pm

HOW does this show keep go­ing? By the ugly in­spi­ra­tion that is real life is how. This is a cracker of a story tonight, and here’s the guest cast: El­liott Gould, Charles Grodin and Buck Henry, gun ac­tor and the guy who wrote Get Smart. Ge­nius. The set- ting is a very pri­vate pri­vate school, sud­denly mired in sex­ual abuse al­le­ga­tions that only sur­face when a re­tired teacher dies. Sui­cide? Or was he killed by ‘‘ Curt’’, who’d signed the ac­cusatory let­ter the teacher had on him? This isn’t about a trial, though. There are lay­ers and con­text, and for an hour-long show, it’s nice and com­plex.
