The Kettering Incident: DVD Review
Released by Madman Home Ent
A slow-burning eight part series starring Guardians of the Galaxy's Elizabeth Debicki, Aussie drama The Kettering Incident is not for those looking for a quick story to be told.
Debicki is Dr Anna Macy, drawn to the case of 2 missing girls back in her hometown. But as is usual with these kinds of shows, her return back to the homestead causes all manner of problems and tensions to resurface.
Add in the fact there are environmental protests at a logging site nearby and lights in the sky, and it's a potent mix for fans of the slow-burning genre.
Nicely put together and strongly acted but with a punishingly sedate pace, The Kettering Incident is a drama to watch, but not to binge. Its pace puts you off the "I have to see what happens next" approach and it's mainly one to stagger over a few nights.
Ultimately, The Kettering Incident promises a little more than it delivers. But given its prestige, it's worth bearing with.
