Wandering TV critic tries to steal Jake Doyle’s ride

Wednesday, Republic of Doyle airs in its regular CBC timeslot (9 p.m.). Then, next week, Dec. 10, comes the two-hour finale to the brawlin’, tire-squealin’  six year old detective series.

I was out in St. John’s last summer when they were putting the finishing touches to the series. So, naturally, I tried to steal Jake Doyle’s car. It’s a sweet ride, a 1968 Pontiac GTO. They actually have three of them, I didn’t think one would be missed. I was wrong. Watch the video (and thanks to Ian Vatcher for shooting it).

    Nice. There used to be a rusted Pontiac GTO in our neighbours’ field by a slough (apparently it had been used for parts back in the day). We kids had gone on one of our adventures and were crawling on top of the car when a family of raccoons took issue and we hightailed it. I still think of that car when I watch RoD.
