Storyline

Hospital psychiatrist Jan Falkowski is engaged to Debbie Pemberton. After they are plagued by a series of silent phone calls someone enters Jan's houseboat and turns on all the gas taps. Over the months the couple are bombarded with warped text messages,expressing desire for Jan and threatening Debbie with the stark 'U Be Dead' and similar death threats.The stalker even cancels their wedding by phone as well as ringing their families. The police trace the caller,Maria Marchese,an Argentinian shop worker whose ex-boyfriend was a patient of Jan but she denies everything and the Crown Prosecution Service feel there is insufficient evidence to try her. By now Jan has left Debbie for the younger Bethan but his ordeal intensifies as he is arrested on charges of doping and raping Maria,for which he stands trial. She even has him suspended from work,sending him the triumphant text 'Got U'. But has she got him? Or,at his trial,will her lies be exposed and will she be the one who ends up behind...

A pretty standard stalker
21 January 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Very worthwhile viewing, shown here tonight on ABC the Australian "government" channel. It's surprising that there are no reviews as far as I can see.

Stalkers are an interesting breed, they tend to use the same methods most of the time and almost never stop. From the research that I have done on this subject stalkers never seem to lose interest or wane in their persistency.

The stalker Maria Marchese obtained amazing amounts of information but this is pretty standard stuff for a stalker. Celebrity stalkers find out the most incredible details, private phone numbers for instance.

Stalking seems to be quite a common problem and doctors/psychiatrists because of their perceived status are often vulnerable. A psychiatrist Jan Falkowski's girlfriend Debbie Pemberton suffers death threats from Marchese because Marchese's delusion is that Debbie is an obstacle to Maria's imaginary union with Falkowski.

A little hard to grasp perhaps but one celebrity who suffered this was Catherine Zeta-Jones who received constant threats for having a relationship with Michael Douglas that the stalker felt was their right to have. Search Dawnette Knight for some examples of the graphic language used.

All in all just another case but it ruins the lives of so many including the stalker who usually gets incarcerated.

Gavin deBecker, Park Dietz, J. Reid Meloy are some of the names that you can look up to find out more about stalking so that the next time you hear of a case you won't be surprised!
