Critic Reviews for The Night Caller Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

A refreshingly ethical treatment of its subject providing an unforgettable snapshot of Australian society during a period when these terrible crimes changed Perth forever.

Dec 8, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Awash in stories about the dead, their grieving families, and the wrongly persecuted, The Night Caller offers a multifaceted view of the often-inescapable scars left by trauma.

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

It's stylishly directed, written and edited by the busy Thomas Meadmore, whose last film was the engrossing thriller The Spy Who Fell To Earth for Netflix... But his new TV series is a more personal project.

Dec 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Guilty as it is of occasional overreach, this is gripping television. It takes us back to a time of innocence, captures the moment it was shattered, and traces the aftershocks that echoed for decades.

Dec 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Riveting... It's a marvel of location scouting and production and costume design.

Dec 21, 2020 | Full Review…

As nicely shot as The Night Caller is, the narrative is too jumbled, and too slowly-paced, to really make a viewer sit up and get engaged with the story.
