8. 3 0PM, ABC JackIrish has changed. Gone are stand-alone episodes, replaced by a six-part continuing storyline “inspired” by the Peter Temple detective novels. The inner-Melbourne stomping ground of Irish (Guy Pearce) now shares time with Linda (Marta Dusseldorp) in Manila. Despite some big-name additions to the cast, including Marcus Graham (above), the result is less satisfying than the earlier telemovies.
