If Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake had been scripted by X Files’ Chris Carter, the show might have ended up something like this dark, brooding mystery set in Tasmania.
Prone to blackouts, London-based doctor Anna Macy (Elizabeth Debicki) wakes up one day in the small Tasmania town she was forced to leave as a teenager following the mysterious disappearance of her best friend. When another young woman ((Sianoa Smit-McPhee) vanishes almost immediately in similar circumstances, Anna becomes obsessed with solving the mystery and begins to suspect both disappearances may be connected to a sinister scientific facility.
Debicki – currently on the big screen in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 – makes for a believably flawed heroine and she is ably supported by a top notch supporting cast, which includes the likes of Matthew Le Nevez, Sacha Horlar, Ben Oxenbould and Damon Gameau. The Kettering Incident sustains an unsettling air of dread throughout its eight episodes and the enigmatic finale leaves the door open for a second series.
