Ter­ri­tory Cops

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 7.30pm, CI This new fly-on-the-wall Fox­tel se­ries from John McAvoy’s Eye­works Aus­tralia, writ­ten and pro­duced by Claire Hay­wood, fol­lows the Dar­win po­lice force, lo­cated on the no­to­ri­ous Mitchell Street strip. It’s so rough at night it re­minds me of the old joke: we’ve just ren­o­vated — we’ve put new drunks in. It’s only a nar­row con­crete precinct but at night its bars are rowdy and the drinkers need firm cor­ralling. Tonight sees a dis­tressed man claim­ing his pre­scrip­tion has been stolen, a ma­chete used in an ar­gu­ment, a ma­jor car ac­ci­dent and Dar­win’s al­co­hol-fu­elled Mel­bourne Cup Day cel­e­bra­tions.
