Storyline

When several people are brutally murdered at a service station, Jane Halifax lends her forensic psychiatric skills to the police investigation that immediately follows. As the case progresses, she establishes a strange rapport with Ray Harvey, a mechanic that is the principal witness to the killings, as they both struggle with internal demons involving the loss of loved ones. Meanwhile Senior Detective Eric Ringer starts to seek more from Jane than a professional relationship. In an ironic reversal of roles, Jane finds herself in counseling sessions with another psychiatrist, who probes Jane's lingering conflicts with her deceased father. Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Not a typical episode
13 June 2001 | by (Namibia) – See all my reviews

I've seen a couple of episodes of "Halifax, F.P." and this one was totally different from the others. It was a very intense episode, and *completely* unpredictable; in the end I gave up trying to guess what would happen! Reading other comments, I see that I'm not the only one to recognise Hugh Jackman, although I racked my brains throughout the first half of the story, to work out who he was, and only recognised his name at the end. He definitely kept me watching this episode - he's gorgeous, and I can't wait for "X-Men II," or "Someone like you" to reach the cinemas here!
