  1. Total Control is so impressive. It holds it own against anything you’d classify as brilliant quality drama from any country. Deborah Mailman is amazing on screen and the supporting cast doesn’t disappoint. If you haven’t seen this yet you’re missing out.

    1. Yes,Total Control is quality, compelling viewing.
      Deborah is brilliant as usual – great to see her playing a more hard edged character for a change. Tough, uncompromising but at the same time, full of self doubt and vulnerability.
      All the cast are excellent. Took me a while to realise that Harry Richardson was also the innocent, naive Drake in Poldark. He’s playing a very different character here..

  2. So pleased Total Control won its slot. I can’t say enough good things about it. I expect it to scoop several awards, and not just Logies.
    The Block also has me hooked this year, can’t wait for the Auction, might even open a bottle of Red and put out a platter for the occasion.
