A great show with good acting!
3 May 2005 | by Gideonssword79See all my reviews

I saw this program on a flight from London to the United States. I did not know it was an Australian program until the end; nonetheless, the actors were magnificent and the plot excellent.

I will not spoil it for anyone who wishes to see it - I will say that Marta Dusseldorp is sexy as hell and she is a great actress.

Colin Friels does a great job as Jack Kempson.

And who is Helen Thomson, who plays the daughter?

The police as shown as sometimes being as bad as the criminals, which is a fresh view of things.

The use of forensic evidence is interesting here; we see first hand how Australians use this technology.

This show is a CSI-type crime drama for people who are looking for such a show.

I see that there are other episodes of this show...does anyone in Australia see them? Are they still on the air? Are future shows planned?

Sydney is a really nice city in this show.

I wish they showed this show in the United States - I would definitely watch further episodes.
