Well made series
24 January 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The drought-stricken landscape of South Australia is a basic element, almost a 'character', of this well-written series, which I'm watching again for its 2nd run. But the dramatic tension relies on the relationship between the female leads of Rachel Ward and Victoria Thaine - sometimes tense, usually respectful. Many scenes work for their unfinished or repressed words, and awkward silences of these actors, as their characters struggle to relate to each other. Lots of good Oz wine is consumed - South Australian, no doubt ! Rachel Ward looks as sexy as ever, albeit unaided by makeup or other enhancements - which she doesn't need !

With pedigreed writers like Tony Morphett involved, we expect and get fine results in this ABC TV production.
