A floating body, a drug deal gone wrong, and two former detectives the perpetrators. Life imprisonment is the end of Roger Rogerson's story. The last Blue Murder ended with his expulsion in disgrace from the NSW Police Force. In this instalment, Rogerson struggles to make a living in a world that's rapidly changing, caught between the pressures of criminals, police and a love that might save him.
Well worth the time picking up where we left off from the original mini series.
Blue Murder: Killer Cop picks up where we left off from the hard hitting mini series that debuted in 1995. The original series ended which saw Detective Sergeant Roger Rogerson (Richard Roxborough) being dismissed from the NSW Police Force in disgrace, and Arthur "Neddy" Smith (Tony Martin) arrested.
Richard Roxborough reprises his role as Roger Rogerson (now older) and the various events from the late 1980's which saw him mixing with various criminal elements, doing time in prison, finding various jobs here and there such as scaffolding, and to more recently which saw him jailed for life for the 2014 murder of Jamie Gao.
Richard Roxborough's portrayal of Roger Rogerson is still excellent, but by far and away his performance in the 1995 mini series is still the most memorable.
The rest of the supporting cast featuring an array of Australian actors include Toni Collette (Muriel's Wedding), Matt Nable (Arrow), Emma Booth (Underbelly: The Golden Mile), Damian Walshe-Howling (Blue Heelers), Dan Wyllie (Chopper), Justin Smith (Howzat! Kerry Packer's War), Aaron Jeffrey (McLeod's Daughters), Steve Le Marquand (Beneath Hill 60), Aaron Pedersen (Water Rats), Peter Phelps (Stingers), and Tony Martin (reprising his role as Neddy Smith from Blue Murder).
Even through Blue Murder is still one of the best Australian mini series, Blue Murder: Killer Cop is still well worth the time.
