Storyline

A psychiatric patient, Reginald Aitken, who has been hospitalised for the last 18 years manages to escape from hospital. The same night a 17 year old girl, Sadie Carr (Commander Blake's god daughter), goes missing from a night club. Reginald is discovered holding the girl's body and covered in his blood. Reginald is thought to be the killer as his fingerprints were found on the murder weapon, however, the body of an earlier victim is uncovered, and it is proven that she was killed when he was locked up in the hospital. DCI Bridges gets the unsolicited help from a rather rude DI from Amsterdam, Van Hauten, who had similar cases in Amsterdam. Written by Branny

Blacklight
18 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Outstanding group of actors in this series. Amanda Burton always at her best. Blacklight series was the first time I had ever heard of Yorick van Wageningen who played the role of DI Van Hautin from Holland. Now here is a wonderful actor with great abilities and appearance before the camera. I certainly would like to see more of this young actor in USA/Canada. After watching the Blackdog series, I wondered what Lynda LaPlantes' next exciting series would be and she did not disappoint me at all. Both Blackdog and Blacklight had exciting story contents. Lynda certainly does pick her cast very carefully and precisely. Cannot say enough good remarks about the cast in both of these series.
