Louise Jameson takes her first turn at Judge Dredd playing Psi Judge Anderson.
The story has some very predictable elements at its core. It's hard to imagine that they would introduce this character, have her lose all psychic power and have the story end that way and it's no surprise that they're back at the end of the story. However, we once again get a few new insights into Mega City One and it's use of psychics in this post-apocalytic world. The concept of "Think Easies" and Psychic thugs working for the mob? Very cool.
As for Louise Jameson, her performance was great. I love her as Leela, but it's nice to see how she takes on this different role and she does a great job playing someone who is a friend of Dredd, someone who knows that Dredd doesn't just have one expression-he has three. She's a very tough character,but the scared boy who is also a powerful psychic weapon brings out her more caring side.
Overall, I thought the series of Crime Chronicles offered a nice variety. We had stories told from a criminal, friend of a victim, Dredd's old partner, and one by Dredd himself. With the exception of the Devil's playground all were pretty good with Blood Will Tell being the best. It's a pity more weren't made.
