NOISE (2007) SBS ONE, 11.45PM, MA15+, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Matt Sav­ille’s haunting thriller is a mur­der mys­tery on the sur­face, but un­derneath is a com­plex char­ac­ter drama about a man try­ing to find him­self. Fans of Bren­dan Cow­ell’s LoveMyWay char­ac­ter Tom will recog­nise sim­i­lar traits in his por­trayal of Gra­ham McGa­han, a bit­ter young cop cop­ing with grow­ing re­la­tion­ship dif­fi­cul­ties, ca­reer prob­lems and the ef­fects of tin­ni­tus (a con­di­tion pro­duc­ing a con­tin­ual ring­ing in the ears). As­signed to a po­lice trailer out­side a sub­ur­ban milk bar af­ter a se­ries of grue­some mur­ders, McGa­han be­gins to re­late to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and peo­ple af­fected by the tragedies. With­out real­is­ing, he finds him­self im­mersed deeper in the case and even closer to the killer.
