Top of the Lake
Detective Robin Griffin returns when a body washes ashore on Bondi Beach
drama / 9.00pm / BBC2 Oscar-winning writer Jane Campion’s dark drama returns after four years for a second series, this time set in Sydney, where Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) is trying to rebuild her life and track down her daughter,
Mary, who she gave up for adoption 17 years ago. But when a suitcase containing the body of an unidentified Asian woman washes ashore, Robin’s investigation leads her to prostitution and sex trafficking… Nicole Kidman joins the cast as Mary’s adoptive mother, and
Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie plays Robin’s new cop partner, who brings a bit of humour to this fantastically bleak crime thriller.
