DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
JESSE STONE, 13th Street, Foxtel, 8.30pm
I KNOW this is a telemovie, kind of B-grade, but it still manages to deliver a big surprise start as effective as anything 10 times its budget. OK, five times. It’s the beginning of a case that brings ‘‘ retired’’ police chief Jesse Stone — Tom Selleck — back to the force. Temporarily. He’s looking good. He’s stopped dyeing his hair that very black shade of black. But everything else is bad. The cop who took his job is dead, and everyone else has left, so it’s basically just him and his handsome dog, and a couple of Paradise city councillors. And that beautiful Nova Scotia location.
