Trivia

Although it was finally on air, Homicide lost money on the first 26 episodes because costs for the show were grossly underestimated, and it took until episode 106 to recover all accumulated losses. Hector Crawford was, in fact, supported by his wife during the early period of getting Homicide on to TV. Crawford Productions made a pilot of the show and were a year trying to sell it. When they did, the only price they could get was way below cost. On the first 26 episodes the company lost a total of $38,000. Dorothy, Hector's sister and partner, and himself went a year without salary. They had to mortgage Hector's house. It was only through Glenda going out and singing a great deal that kept them solvent." See more »

Seminal Australian cop show
6 January 2003 | by taipan-1See 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.
