Hong Kong Inspector Fang Sing Leng travels to Australia to extradite a drug dealer. When the hood is assassinated on his way to court, everyone suspects Jack Wilton, a crime lord who the local police haven't been able to pick up.
"Adelaide was interesting," said Ian Crawford. "Repeats of Homicide in Adelaide always did better than the first run - much better. Apparently they kept changing it around to different nights trying to get the ratings the other states had. So eventually they put repeats on and just left them there, and the audience figures kept going up - much higher than they ever got on the first run!" 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.
