Doctor Anna Macy finds herself inexplicably linked to the disappearance of two girls, fifteen years apart.
Filmed in Tasmania – an island state of the Commonwealth of Australia – Anna Macy is a highly-regarded doctor, working at a hospital in London, suffering from headaches and frequent memory lapses. After one of her black-outs, she wakes up back in her hometown, Kettering. She left the town 15 years prior, after the mysterious disappearance of her best friend, Gillian. Upon her return, another girl goes missing, forcing Anna to search for the truth about both missing girls.
I am a HUGE fan of Australian television, so I went into this with high hopes. The first seven episodes are truly phenomenal. Gripping. Chilling. Mind-bending. I loved those seven episodes so much that I went back and re-watched them with My Love so that he wouldn’t miss out.
And then? The season finale?
SHIT. THE. BED.
Absolutely, THE WORST finale, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In fact I was FURIOUS I had wasted sooooo much time on a series that completely dropped the ball and screwed the viewers out of something that could have been incredible. And, they left way too many loose ends. I was left with more questions than answers.
Apparently, according to this article:
I’m not the only one who feels this way. Moreover, as of now, there will NOT be another season. So viewers are left hanging, forever.
So, if you have 8 hours to waste, only to be sorely disappointed, then knock yourself out. Otherwise, sadly, this show is an epic fail. Don’t waste your time.
