Great Australian Drama at its Best
9 November 2014 | by jrislesSee all my reviews

I have just completed watching the Killing Time series on the Soho channel on pay TV. I am not too sure how i missed this at time of release but so glad i caught the beginning of this show on its re- screening.

I won't go into too much detail other than to say this would have to be one of David Wenham' finest. I have always liked/loved David Wenham as an actor and i think the first time I ever saw him in a show were the "Sea Change" series that aired on ABC years ago.

The whole show is superbly cast but David Wenham is certainly convincing in this role. Diana Glenn also plays a magnificent long suffering wife role in this show.

I do hope it won numerous awards and if like me you haven't seen it before i certainly suggest you do.

An excellent show, excellent actors, excellent storyline/plot (i did not know anything about Andrew Fraser before i started watching this show). A must see for the acting alone.
