Brilliant example of Australian drama
16 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A fine example of Australian life during the 1950s and 1960s when the extraordinary "serial killer" Eric Edgar Cooke caused a great deal of trouble. It has been stated that he was the man who made Perth residents start to lock their doors at night.

The mundane Drewe household with Dunlop clocks and similar company products highly visible contrasts with the extraordinary one man crime wave Cooke, played disturbingly well by Dan Wyllie who emerges as an actor who seems to be able to climb inside his characters. I rate Wyllie very highly as an actor, his peers must feel the same way as he is often given extremely complex character roles.

It is obvious that the other actors also believed that they were in a good production.

McInnes succeeds as Drewe's company obsessed father who we would be proud to put the company before any other human need that he may have.
