On May 8 1943 Pauline Thompson was stood up for a dance. She instead met an American soldier and they drank together. He offered to walk her home and she accepted, since the heavy rain was making the Melbourne streets even darker than usual. Pauline had a beautiful voice, and as they walked, she sang to him.
World War Two brought masses of American soldiers to Melbourne. At first the 'exotic' foreigners are welcomed by all, particularly many young women who are impressed by their suave uniforms and hollywood-like charm. But as panic grows over a series of brutal attacks, this all starts to change.
Dead & Buried teams up with crime fiction author Anna Snoekstra for this final, thrilling episode of series one.
