Storyline

Drew Ellis is the latest lawyer to join the chaotic and challenging world of the Kimberley Circuit Court. The Circuit follows a magistrate and an entourage of court officers and lawyers on a regular five-day 2000 kilometre round-trip to dispense justice to the remote communities of north Western Australia. It's a tough gig for anyone, but for Drew Ellis, a city blackfella, it's a rude awakening as he quickly comes to realise that one law for two cultures doesn't equal a fair go. Written by Anonymous

Fantastic Series ~ Location, Location, Location
26 November 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've only just viewed a few episodes of this show on DVD that I borrowed from my local library. I was aware of it but as I don't get broadcast television in my regional area, I haven't had the opportunity to see it. First, I can't believe that it hasn't been reviewed on IMDb. A serious oversight, as so many Australian films, actors & television shows now have so much international appeal. This series is a gem ~ filmed in Broome, Western Australia, our multicultural capital if you will. It reminded me a lot of 'Seachange', only more drama than comedy and with the added bonus of real Australians ~ Blackfellas strutting their stuff! The show stars the lovely and talented and very handsome Aaron Pedersen as a city solicitor chucked in the deep end of family, love and the law in the gorgeous Kimberley region of North West Australia. The writers have gone for the real deal with the problems of the community there. All the mixed bag of lollies found in shows like 'The Wire', the stories and language are true, funny, tragic and fascinating. I will mos def be getting into more of it ~ highly recommended.
