The Bluey Detective
20 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bluey was shown late night on British television. It was still a time when Australian soaps did not populate the daytime schedules. So an Australian cop show in the late 1970s was rather novel where as before you were left with Skippy the Kangaroo as the nearest thing to crime solving.

The show focused on detective 'Bluey' Hills played by Lucky Grills. Bluey smoke, drank and was very fat. He was also used to using brute force on criminals. I reckon the show was inspired in parts by British shows like The Sweeney and also American shows like Cannon.

Bluey was set in Melbourne and he and his team would use unconventional methods to solve cases. It was an enjoyable late night show.
