Praise be to whoever decided to turn this semiregular telemovie into an extended six- part series. It’s very good. This week, private detective Jack ( Guy Pearce) is struggling to cope and recuperate after the traumatic explosion in last week’s dramatic instalment. Devastated and rattled, his mind grows increasingly dark. He pushes away Linda, played by the brilliant Marta Dusseldorp ( above, with Pearce), who reluctantly returns to Manila … where she’s promptly abducted.
