“Devil’s Playground” (2014) is a 6-episode Australian TV series and a follow-up of sorts to the award-winning 1976 film "The Devil's Playground” ( ). The setting for the film is 1953 Melbourne and the series is set in 1988 Sydney.

It is 1988 and Tom is now in his forties. A practising Catholic and respected Sydney psychiatrist, Tom accepts an offer from the Bishop of Sydney to become a secular confessor to the Catholic clergy, and is soon embroiled in political and theological intrigue.

I’ll just add to the above review that for me the series is a tense and gripping drama from beginning to end with superb acting, an awesome script and powerful visuals. Sue-Ellen Lee is spot on when she says that it takes you on an emotional roller-coaster ride and that it’s “not easy watching.”

Principal players are veteran Australian actors Simon Burch (who is gay and out), Toni Collette, John Noble, Jack Thompson and Don Hany, as well as Jarin Towney as “Elliot,” Matt Levett as “Brendan,” and James Fraser as Tom’s son, “David.” You may recognize Fraser from his starring role in the 2014 short, “Nineteen”: -- Thanks nike2288, ENJOY!! image
