This is easily the best mini-series this country has produced. From the opening scenes to the end credits the story rips along at a furious and engaging pace. The writing, indeed the script editing are first rate. The direction of the story is clear and equally the actors seem to respond exactly to the needs of the character, story and director.
At no time does the viewer ever become bogged down in superfluous plot because it simply doesn't exist. Instead we get only the intriguing facts of this gripping saga of Australian crime. The research is clearly extensive and the whole production team have done a terrific job. This is what TV should be.
