  4. HOMICIDE HAS GOTTEN SOME COLOUR IN ITS LIFE. 5 Star Review
    Posted by Tony Crossley on 28/02/2017

    The coloured episodes of HOMICIDE have now been reached starting with volume 15.
    There are still a number of black & white episodes left to run before the colour ones start.
    Mike Preston was completely miscast as Sergeant Bob Delaney.
    The character’s quite dull and not much is known about him.
    There are many episodes where Delaney does’nt say or do much.
    Preston never fitted in with the regular cast and looks and sounds too different to be effective in the role.
    There’s also confusion about Delaney’s rank, the slick states ‘Senior Detective’, which is mentioned in several episodes, however sometimes it’s ‘Sergeant’.
    Preston’s departure from HOMICIDE involves being blown to bits by a home made bomb.
    Alwyn Kurts is an extremely heavy smoker and is never seen without a cigarette in his mouth
    or on his desk.
    He smokes everywhere – in people’s homes, airports, cars, hospitals etc…the man’s a walking chimney stack !..

    The best episode would have to be - “They clear them every Thursday”,
    which strangely is the only one without a writer’s credit.
    The funniest scene comes towards the end, when Fox states the garbos are on strike,
    which explains why evidence dumped by the elderly killer is still in a rubbish bin.

    Unlike Mike Preston, Gary Day’s entrance is far more effective.
    He’s all ‘yes sir, no sir..three bags full sir’ and manages to stay this way for the rest of the series.
    The “Assassin” episode is a standout and marks the end of Leonard Teale and Alwyn Kurt’s
    tenure with the series.

    Despite a tight script, here are 2 mistakes connected with the shooting of Fox.
    The exit wound on Fox’s forehead is inconsistent with the height, distance and angle of the shooter’s line-of-sight, meaning the exit wound is in the wrong position.

    The second error concerns the placement of Mackay’s fingers on the side of Fox’s neck,
    The carotid artery is lower down and to the front of the neck.
    Mackay’s Fingers were too high to check for a pulse and for a so-called shooting,
    there was very little blood.

    “The Kooranda Killing” marks the entrances of Charles Tingwell as Inspector Reg Lawson
    and John Stanton as Detective Pat Kelly.
    Tingwell is very convincing as a police inspector, with Stanton giving a typical
    schizoid performance.

    I’ve noticed the number of times the Doors are opened and closed in the office set.
    Norman Yemm once told me they had to be closed to keep the flies out !...
    The set looks solid and impressive and comes up very well in colour.
    Needless to say, I’ve been waiting a long time to see the colour episodes and will now start purchasing volumes as they are released.
  5. Imressive cast changes 5 Star Review
    Posted by Alison McRae on 28/02/2017

    There are more cast changes in this period of Homicide than ever before but don't worry Crawfords knew what they were doing by introducing such great actors as Tingwell Day and Stanton and i love those Valiants very fast shipping and loved the qaulity keep up the great work Crawfords
  6. HOMICIDE VOLUME 15 5 Star Review
    Posted by Luke on 28/02/2017

    BRILLIANT and FANTASTIC with great acting from the main cast as well as the guest actors including Sigrid Thornton as well as ex Homicide cast members Terry McDermott and Lex Mitchell as well as great scenes as well and it is great to see the colour episodes on the DVD. Look forward to Volume 16.
  7. END OF AN ERA 5 Star Review
    Posted by James on 28/02/2017

    This set (Volume 15) of all the sets released so far is probably the one that has the most changes from start to finish. It contains episodes 362 and 364 to 388 (363 is a 'double' episode and is on the last disc on Volume 14). There is the change from B&W to colour (in Ep 376) and three cast changes, with two in the one episode. In the space of 10 episodes it went from B&W to colour and from the Alwyn Kurts, Leonard Teale, George Mallaby and Mike Preston combination to Charles (Bud) Tingwell, George Mallaby, Gary Day and John Stanton.

    With the said cast changes it also marks the end of an era with the departures of Alwyn Kurts, but more particularly Leonard Teale who appeared in over 350 episodes, who had been a regular since Ep 27. As good as Bud Tingwell & Co were, it was never the same again, still a great show mind you, but it certainly lost something when those two, particularly Teale, left the show. With due respect to the other cast members over the time, I've often thought Leonard Teale WAS Homicide.

    But as for the set itself, of course we still have the wonderful array of guest actors appearing here, there and everywhere, in all sorts of roles, too numerous to list here, but there's plenty of familiar faces to be seen. And as much as I love black-and-white it is nice to see them in colour, with 13 episodes in B&W in this set and 13 in colour
  8. Impressive Television 5 Star Review
    Posted by Tony on 28/02/2017

    Great to see a TV show where there is a good plot and good acting after so many years of seeing a reliance on special effects and unnecessary violence. I really enjoyed watching this show- still good after all these years. It was as good as I remembered it.
