The Kettering Incident: Season 1 Reviews

August 7, 2018
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.

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.

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

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.

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

The real mystery is how many genres a single show can keep in play, before a globetrotting audience decides it would rather escape elsewhere.

I'm hooked, but I don't know if the suspense can be sustained. We'll see.

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.
February 21, 2017
It revels in its location, and in the frustrations of those stuck in the back end of nowhere.

With a terrific cast, a dark central mystery and an atmosphere thick with foreboding, this new Australian drama is off to an enthralling start.
September 25, 2016
It's the extraordinary -- and entirely unique -- landscape of southern Tasmania that is The Kettering Show's most potent feature.

The prestige of the Australian mini-series is back, it's just that the rest of the world has caught up. The Kettering Incident is one of the very best yet and a must watch.

The Kettering Incident is gripping television and well worth your time.
September 25, 2016
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.

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.
