Trivia

Although Homicide was based on a formula to a certain extent (i.e. a murder and its investigation, with the usual dramatic devices such as fights and car chases), it also varied within this formula to a large degree. The narrative style could reveal the murderer before the opening titles, and then concentrate on the methods the detectives use to bring him or her to justice. At other times a number of suspects could be presented with many twists and turns to keep viewers guessing till the last commercial break. See more »

Seminal Australian cop show
6 January 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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.
