The likable detective Jack, solves "Cold Cases" solo, as a result of becoming a whistle blower
The BlackJack telemovies made here in Australia are a great showcase for the acting talent in Australia in a sea of reality TV shows.
Jack is a knockabout detective who has been banished to the basement of headquarters and given the task of solving Cold Cases. All because of whistle blowing on fellow officers for corruption.
His boss is old school, and hates Jack for obvious reasons and makes sure he makes his life as difficult as possible.
In this episode, a young woman goes missing when her car breaks down one night. Her body is found in a national park. When similarities are found with a previous disappearance, Jack picks up the pursuit of both cases.
Plenty of red herrings and great twists made this an enjoyable movie it was great to see a legend of Australian television Garry McDonald in a wonderfully cast role as the depressed grieving father of one of the girls. Garry has suffered severe depression most of his life mainly as a comedian!
