Dark Heart of the Island : The Kettering Incident's Tasmanian Gothic Fairytale Emily Bullock , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Metro Magazine , Summer vol. 191 no. 2017; (p. 42-47)
Set against the lush, mountainous landscapes of Australia's island state, and with a narrative that highlights how a menacing past can inexorably intrude on the present, Foxtel's The Kettering Incident has all the hallmarks of the Tasmanian gothic genre. Beyond this, the series appropriates science fiction elements to convey a powerful message about the struggle between commercial self-interest and environmental preservation, writes Emily Bullock.
The Kettering Incident Finale : An Acute Look at Fan Theories Aja Styles , 2016 single work
— Appears in: Brisbane Times , 18 August 2016;
'First off I'm a fan who thinks this series has been one of the best produced Australian dramas in a long time, having combined my love of The X-Files with a good murder mystery. But. The finale was disappointing simply because it left me frustrated at the number of questions that continue to need answers, with no guarantee of a second season from Foxtel. ...'
