FILM / 9pm / BBC4
The 2013 Australian thriller Mystery Road spawned both a TV series (recently shown on BBC4) and this fabulous sequel. We return to the Outback, where cool aborigine cop Aaron Pedersen and local white cop Alex Russell are searching for a missing sex worker. A gritty Oz thriller that’s a must for fans of beautifully desolate scenery, rough justice and slow-burn drama simmering with racial resentment.
