Series one, episode four
Jane Campion’s trippy Kiwi noir continues with the focus on Jonno and Robin’s relationship. Robin has predictably been stood down after her somewhat erratic performance last week. This frees her up to further explore the circumstances around her own teen trauma – the results are as disturbing as we’ve come to expect.

In terms of the hunt for Tui, parts of this episode seem like a pause for breath. All the same, ‘Top of the Lake’ feels genuinely emotionally literate as well as working as a thriller – Matt’s pain is gradually revealing itself too and we’re expecting a finale that satisfies and chills on many levels. Oh, and any drama that sneaks in a burst of New Zealand indie legends Straightjacket Fits is okay by us. As close to unmissable as TV gets just now.
