DRAMA, 8.30PM, ABC1
The obsession with period dramas continues with the latest offering from the ABC. Set in Singapore in 1964, the streets are filled with American sailors fresh from Vietnam and British and Australian soldiers on the way to war in Borneo. Among the hustle and bustle are constant terrorism attacks. But this is not a war drama. Rather, it’s a detective series. And a polished one at that. It follows former military intelligence captain Sam Callaghan (Don Hany), who is recruited by his neighbour Patricia Cheng (Joan Chen) to work at her private eye agency.
