The first reviews for DEADLINE GALLIPOLI are in and it's clearly hitting the mark with critics. Deadline Gallipoli is a fresh look at the Gallipoli legend, from the perspective of four war correspondents, Phillip Schuler, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Keith Murdoch and Charles Bean.These were the first truly embedded war correspondents whose defiance ignited a change in the campaign's course and whose commitment to the stories of the men who turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.

Starring alongside Sam Worthington, Hugh Dancy and Charles Dance, Aaron plays front line soldier Stan Phipps in the 9 month long campaign on Anzac Cove. Foxtel's powerful new Australian mini-series Deadline Gallipoli will have its world premiere over two nights next month – Sunday April 19 and Monday April 20, at 8.30pm EST, on showcase.

"While the troops sacrificed wilfully "for God and Empire" remain the heroic heart of this miniseries, it's these four messengers who stay committed to telling the truth of events - motivated to keep those men left from being more "food for worms" - who bring fresh insight to this well-worn tale. ...being reminded of the horror, of the human sacrifice, even the value of a free press, makes it essential viewing." -

"Deadline is epic, cinematic even, but at its heart, this is a story about the little guy standing up to the bigger one. And there's something very Australian about that." -

"Director Michael Rymer is the unseen star of this drama, a master at bringing to life the drama...he deftly juggles the emotions of the individuals within the opera of this war, wrapped around grand set pieces that are most satisfying for the committed viewer." - TV Tonight
