A melancholy series
Overall, the tone is solemn and measured, taking a serious approach to a still-raw subject while keeping things varied enough to avoid overtly wallowing in pain.
The search for the terrorists is an ongoing subplot.
The second episode is dominated by medical and logistical issues, while the fourth episode is dominated by the capture of Dr. Azahari and the trial
of his henchmen.
Is a drama about the Bali bombings twenty years too soon?
Despite the occasional rough edge, enough time has passed for this to feel more educational than exploitative.
It’s the kind of drama that’s meant to appear important rather than entertaining, and it’s aimed at a prestige audience that’s not usually catered to
by recent Australian television.
Creating the atmosphere
The first of four episodes focuses on various people caught up in the bombings, mostly young Australian and British tourists.
Polly Miller (Claudi Jesse) is on her honeymoon from the United Kingdom, while Nicole (Elizabeth Cullen) and bestie Natalie (Sophia Forrest) are just having fun.
While Ni Luh is at home with her two children, her husband Gede (Gerwin Widjaya) works Saturday nights at the clubs, changing foreign currency.
Other characters are introduced briefly before taking centre stage in later episodes.
AFL footballer Jason McCartney (Sean Keenan) is having fun with a group of North Melbourne players; Hanabeth (Saskia Archer) is in Kuta with her boyfriend, enjoying the surf.
The big names don’t appear in full until episode two.
Richard Roxburgh plays AFP commander Graham Ashton, who is assigned to lead Australia’s quasi-legal investigation into a crime under Indonesian jurisdiction.
Rachel Griffiths is Doctor Fiona Wood, a burns specialist in Perth and the creator of a new spray-on skin treatment that you’ll hear a lot about here.
