Bloody good Aussie drama mate
26 April 2017 | by peterrichboySee all my reviews

I've not seen many Australian dramas on account most I've seen have not been that good. Usually they love to blow there own trumpet about how great they our as a nation. Tales of heroes underdogs or people who take on the establishment and win. But here we have the true story of Andrew Fraser, a corrupt lawyer involved in two of Australia's highest profile cases the Walsh st police murders and the Alan Bond bankruptcy case. It shows a dark side to Australia we don't normally see. Police corruption, drugs and violent crime. The show captures the excesses eighties and nineties perfectly whilst David Wenham an actor I had not seen before is excellent in the lead role.
