Big Boss is the story of Baymarrwangga, a 95-year-old Indigenous Elder living in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, and her challenge as the remaining leader of the Yan-nhangu speaking people to pass on her knowledge to the next generation.
Set in Ballarat in 1959, Dr Lucien Blake has returned home after decades away to take over the country practice from his dying father. A former Army Medical Officer and POW, Dr Blake is both a GP and the town's police surgeon, which means he often finds himself investigating deaths ‐ both natural and unnatural. He is haunted by the horrors of wars, his incarceration in Thailand's infamous Ban Pong POW camp and his own personal loss. Everyone trusts the doctor. They tell him everything. And he has a dammed good nose for things left unsaid.
