A six-part thriller TV series based on the telemovie The Killing Field, starring Rebecca Gibney and Peter O'Brien as Detective Sergeant Eve Winter and Detective Inspector Lachlan McKenzie, Eve's former boss and love interest. Together, they must solve the chilling murder of young 23-year-old mother at a fishing town south of Sydney.
This is a TV series that goes all over the place with its story line. There are so many subplots that are loosely held together that its difficult to know what the main focus of the series was all about. Everyone has a secret, everyone is a suspect is something or another, and at the end, everyone lives happily ever after. The scenes jump around due to poor editing, and sometimes appear in a random order. In the last episode it was as if there was a lot of pressure to wrap things up quickly, so problems were quickly solved, and an all too predictable end finally reached.
The acting comes across as very "tongue-in-cheek", almost as if the actors really didn't believe the words they were saying. This may just have been due to a poor script, or their desire to get to the end of the story and move on to something else.
There are some really good Australian productions. This is just not one of them!
