Trivia

Homicide, as the name implies, centered around the homicide squad of the Victoria Police. The original cast featured veteran actor John Fegan as Inspector Jack Connolly, head of the squad - a seasoned policeman, dry-humoured, outwardly gruff but a very warm and human officer devoted to his job. (The name Connolly was selected to reflect the Irish influence in Australian police forces). Terry McDermott played Detective Sergeant Frank Bronson, a capable and calculating detective, very tough when necessary but generally easy-going, with a strong core of humanity and humour. Lex Mitchell as Detective Rex Fraser was the third member of the team, young, impulsive, and single - a ladies man and a milk drinker, and only recently assigned to the squad. See more »

5 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

One of the best Aussie police shows ever,along with division4 and matlock police. Unfortunately nothing ever released on DVD of all three shows.I have a few episodes on DVD that I have got from the TV and I love nothing more than watching these great Australian police shows.Along the way there has been a great number of actors used in these shows.A few of these actors have even gone on to Hollywood and made big names for them selves overseas, as well as local actors here that have even starred in other Australian made shows.The best part of watching these shows was trying to figure out where and which suburb in Melbourne it had been filmed at.
