Cop show with a difference
29 August 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Remember where you heard it first, fans. The new Cate Blanchett is on the block. Her name is Freya Stafford. Looks good, NIDA graduate, can act and is going to go a long way.The show has intelligent, realistic plots and a capable cast. Pity it's on the teeny boppers channel in Australia (Network Ten) Ratings haven't been real good yet, but this show is going to take off. Sue Masters (ex Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is the Executive Producer which means the show has go to be classy.
