FUGI­TIVES STAY CLOSE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

THE sea­son three re­turn of has been as solid as the ob­vi­ous friend­ship be­tween its lead ac­tors Re­becca Gib­ney and Geral­dine Hakewill as un­likely crims-on-the-run Lola and Chelsea.

While the credit for the suc­cess of this se­ries falls largely at Gib­ney’s feet – and so it should, as creator, pro­ducer and star – Hakewill has been a reve­la­tion as her up­tight off­sider. Their sis­ter­hood on and off the screen is so re­fresh­ing to watch; and the strength of that re­la­tion­ship clear in the chem­istry they bring to their roles.

In tonight’s episode, Lola and Chelsea take refuge with ec­cen­tric loner Shirley (the al­ways bril­liant Ur­sula Yovich) but Chelsea in par­tic­u­lar is strug­gling, find­ing it hard to hide the symp­toms of her Hunt­ing­ton’s dis­ease.

Mean­while, as both women are dis­tracted, the net closes in around them.
