The Judy factor: Davis returns to Australian TV on ABC's Mystery Road

The Judy factor: Davis returns to Australian TV on ABC's Mystery Road

The first striking thing about Mystery Road is the landscape: a vast night sky sparkling with stars, expanses of baked earth, bulbous boab trees, imposing mountain ranges and outcrops of red rock. In addition to being a crime story, a social study and a family drama, the six-part series is an ode to the East Kimberley region of WA, justifiably described by producer Greer Simpkin as "majestic", and beautifully rendered by director of photography Mark Wareham. It's the kind of epic setting beloved by cinema, especially westerns, and rarely seen on TV: ancient, monumental, remote, spectacular.
