XENA:War­riorPrince­ss fans re­joice – Lucy Law­less is fi­nally back on the small screen fight­ing bad guys. But be­fore you get too ex­cited, Law­less isn’t quite the sword-wield­ing gay icon she used to be. Gone is the pok­er­straight, black hair and leather body-armour that Law­less rocked in the cult ’90s se­ries, and in its place is a blon­der and more world­weary war­rior for jus­tice. In the new Aus­tralian se­ries MyLifeisMu­r­der, Law­less plays Alexa Crowe, a re­tired po­lice de­tec­tive who is spent her days mak­ing bread and hang­ing out at home with her pet cat. It doesn’t take much to tempt her out of this some­what dull new rou­tine and into the world of online es­cort­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the death of a male gigolo’s wealthy client. In­ter­est­ingly, the cir­cum­stances of Alexa’s first case bear more than a few sim­i­lar­i­ties to the real-life death of Lisa Har­num, who was thrown to her death from a bal­cony by her con­trol­ling fi­ance Simon Git­tany in 2011.
