Deadloch Review

Last week, Prime Video unveiled its newest Australian original in the form of Deadloch.

When we venture to the small coastal town of Deadloch, Tasmania, three teens discover a man’s naked body washed up on the beach. Tasked with figuring out what happened is Dulcie Collins (Kate Box), but it’s not easy when she’s responsible for overeager Constable Abby Matsuda (Nina Oyama) and the very laid-back Sven Alderman (Tom Ballard).

Dulcie is determined to do everything by the book, but being in small town isn’t easy, especially when hosting the Festival of Food and Wine is the biggest concern for Mayor Aleyna (Susie Youssef).

As Dulcie gets on with the task, progress is quickly derailed by the arrival of no-bullshit detective from the Darwin Major Crimes division Eddie Recliffe (Madeleine Sami). Eddie blows in and wants to wrap things up quickly, but as the case progresses its clear both will have work together to solve the murder.

Created by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, Deadloch has a lot of fun in-store with lots of one-liners and a who dunnit full of red herrings.

The cast is sublime with Kat Box allowed to balance comedy with drama alongside a who’s who of talent that includes Pamela Rabe, Kris McQuade, and Nick Simpson-Deeks.

Full of mystery and humour, Deadloch is a fun watch and for those who enjoy a crime mystery with a side-serving of comedy.
