The first 24 episodes (plus the pilot episode) also featured courtroom scenes to 'wrap up' the cases, an obvious carry-over from the earlier series Consider Your Verdict (1961). Regular support roles for the courtroom scenes were played by Terry Norris as the Defence Counsel (Garrick), and Kenric Hudson as the Prosecutor. Because of the second-half trial in the early days,the script couldn't have an action climax. After the trial was dropped, the scope for better climaxes and a better dramatic build-up during the show was greater. See more »
The show that spawned an entire series of Australian TV cops shows (Division 4, Matlock, Bluey) Homicide premiered as a black and white show filmed on flimsy sets with very little location filming and ended its days as a colour presentation with extensive location shooting. Just about every Australian actor of any note in the 70s and 80s got a start on Homicide.
