America has Dirty Harry, Australia - Kragg!
10 April 2003 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

This series, generally about espionage along the eastern coast of Australia, made a star out of Gerard Kennedy (at least during the 1960s) due to his memorable and unforgettable portrayal of Kragg. Who was Kragg? A really nasty though occasionally charming chap who made hero John Hunter played by ex-news anchor Tony Ward look pretty ordinary. HUNTER is generally forgotten when Aussie dramas from the 1960s are discussed. It's the better-known HOMICIDE which gets the nod, probably as it was in all honesty a better-made series. But it didn't have Gerard Kennedy, an underrated actor who could have given Clint Eastwood a run for his money!
