Notoriously tough TV critic Diana Wichtel gives The Gulf the thumbs up: "When a local police drama makes me tear up a couple of times, with a feeling other than disappointment, I'm in."
"This German-NZ production is taut and compelling"
"The dialogue is snappy and blissfully minimal."
"This leaves room for a bit of psychological depth. The title refers to the space between people, as the evocative Big Little Lies-style opening theme indicates. It's not often you wish the opening titles lasted longer."
"Waiheke noir? Why not?"
