When his mentor is taken captive by a disgraced Arab sheik, a killer-for-hire is forced into action. His mission: kill three members of Britain's elite Special Air Service responsible for the death of his sons.
Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.
Certainly when this show first aired on Australian TV, it was unique as a Ex-Police officer, turned Dry-Cleaner / Private investigator (sort-of, mostly) called Elvis, having an off-sider, Ruben, with Tourette syndrome, and a frustrated assistant Stella, who is trying to run the Dry-Cleaning business despite Elvis' disruptive activities.
Marcus Graham playing Elvis in the central role carried the series very well, and while the series lifespan was short at 26 episodes, a short series usually means the episode plots are kept fairly unique and fresh.
Once of the key factors in the show's enjoyment for me was Travis McMahon's execution of Ruben's condition, the timing and nature of his "tics" being played for light comic relief in tense situations, not to belittle the condition though.
A good series, that I remember enjoying during it's initial broadcast, and enjoying again on a DVD release, now over a decade later.
