Jack Ir­ish

Thurs­day, ABC, 8.30pm

Aunty has sure stuck to its guns in com­mis­sion­ing this thrilling crime-drama, and fans can re­joice at once again see­ing the slightly in­com­pe­tent pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor some­how get­ting caught up in the most de­vi­ous crimes. The new sea­son sees Jack (Guy Pearce, left) be­come a sus­pect when search­ing for a miss­ing man, but when an al­ibi shows up it may cre­ate more en­tan­gle­ments rather than help his case. Join­ing Pearce this sea­son is Aaron Ped­er­sen, Roy Billing, Deborah Mail­man, Clau­dia Kar­van and Brooke Satch­well, as well as the pow­er­house per­for­mance of Marta Dus­sel­dorp as in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist Linda Hillier.

De­spite solid re­views in the UK, this polic ce pro­ce­dural was can­celled af­ter only one s sea­son to the protests of fans and its stars. Aman nda Ab­bing­ton (right, Sher­lock) heads Brighto n’s po­lice force as DS Jo Mof­fat, whose per­sonal life e is just as messy and morally am­bigu­ous as the crim mi­nals she pur­sues. Among the team is wid­ow­err PC Ryan Draper (Ash­ley Wal­ters) and neww re­cruit PC Jake Vick­ers (Ja­cob Ifan), the so on of the re­gion’s chief su­per­in­ten­dent who must prove his worth from un­der­neath hi is father’s shadow. It’s a solid crime drama with im­pres­sive per­for­mances – take ad­van­tage of it while it’s still here.
