Critic Reviews for Secrets of the Dead Season 5

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (4)

Secrets delivers the goods with admirable restraint -- and just enough style to do justice to the ultimate true-life James Bond story.

This episode of PBS's juicy Secrets of the Dead series casts Australia's founding mothers in a new light, and a pretty intriguing one by contemporary standards.

Mar 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Viewers will be disabused of any misconception that German assets were methodically divided among the victors or that Nazi masterminds got their due. Not every American and British decision comes off as heroic.

It eventually runs out of cinematic material, resorting to images of a dripping needle and file folders far too often, but it's fascinating nonetheless.
