Had to borrow this as my overall favourite actor, Noah Taylor, (Jay Baruchel is my fave Canadian actor) is one of the main characters. This is a mini series (4 parts) and was extremely well acted and directed and based on fact. The sad fact of people preying on gay men on the east coast of Aus around the end of the 20th century.

Sydney-born Yael Stone, better known as the Italian inmate Lorna Morello from "Orange Is The New Black" series, was a new to town detective who doggedly pursued a murder with similarities to a cold case that was very personal to her. Bonus interviews stated that the film makers wanted to address the dark side of the tony town Bondi, a suburb of Sydney. Stories like this needed to be told and remembered. Also, from wiki:
The drama is based on the historical, unsolved hate murders of possibly 30 to 80 gay men in Sydney's eastern suburbs and beaches in the 1980s and '90s. SBS broadcast a documentary of these events, Deep Water: The Real Story (2016), in conjunction with the miniseries.

Great ending!

The story was okay. However, Noah Taylor's talent was completely wasted.

Another fine Australian entry: good writing & acting. A few nice twists to keep you guess "who done it". If I'm not mistaken, this is based on true events and there is a documentary of the same title.

Australia is producing better and better crime drama, and Deep Water is a fine entry. This time the setting is Bondi Beach near Sydney. Though the four episode serial starts slowly & is more bloody than necessary, the characters are well-drawn, and the acting first-rate. Veteran character actor Noah Taylor doesn't show much emotion, but becomes a fine foil for Yael Stone who carries the action. This serial killer investigation especially hits home with her as her brother was one of the victims many years ago.
