Critic Reviews for The Kettering Incident Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

This ponderous, derivative show is what happens when a writer sacrifices character on the altar of plot. The more the plot thickens, the more jaw-achingly tedious it becomes.

Mar 1, 2017 | Full Review…

With a terrific cast, a dark central mystery and an atmosphere thick with foreboding, this new Australian drama is off to an enthralling start.

Sep 26, 2016 | Full Review…

The Kettering Incident is gripping television and well worth your time.

Top Critic

The show takes the ordinary and nudges it up the blade of a knife until it's unbearable. Every scene feels rich, given enough time to breathe.

Sep 25, 2016 | Full Review…

It is impossible to guess where The Kettering Incident is going, but the story of this strange place won't leave your head until you find out.

Aug 16, 2016 | Full Review…

Mostly it feels like a wannabe Twin Peaks, only without much plot, dialogue or characterization. Debicki is forced to mope through the episodes like a sleep walker.

Jan 31, 2018 | Full Review…

We know the drill. It's unnerving, eerie happenings as played out against a vast landscape.

Aug 30, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Debicki makes for an intriguing lead, it's certainly atmospheric and, in spite of some major flaws and lulls in the storytelling, this is worth a look for anyone wanting something a little stranger from their murder mysteries.

Apr 13, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is TV made by stupid people - dunces who don't read, chuckle-headed clowns who derive their feeble inspiration from the moving image.

Apr 4, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Debicki's muted shock is fine-tuned, and she resists the ripeness that such an out-there character as Anna might invite. It's a great role.
