COP SHOP hit the Australian television screens in 1977 following on from the successful series HOMICIDE, DIVISION 4 and MATLOCK POLICE.  In the same Crawford tradition of popular home-grown police drama, COP SHOP became an instant favourite thanks to its unique blend of characters, suspense, excitement and continuing human drama, bringing 6 years and over 580 hours of entertainment to Australian homes.

 

In Volume 3, Georgiou finds himself under investigation when a youth is killed by a karate blow.  Pamela and Glenn’s marriage is put to the test.  Johnson finds himself temporarily in charge of Riverside Station, O’Reilly turns inexplicably sullen due to family problems and Baker finds love..

  3. Better And Better
    Posted by Adam on 27/12/2017

    Cop Shop is truly iconic Aussie TV and god bless Crawfords for finally releasing it. The character development in this box set is superb (especially Gil Tucker as Sgt Roy Baker who practically steals the show on some of the later episodes). Most of all, Cop Shop perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the Malcolm Fraser era and gives us a unique glimpse into that 'old Australia' of the '70s- with a wink and a nudge from detective JJ of course. Guest roles include a young Shane Bourne, Stefan Dennis, the ever slithery, smooth- talker Rod Mullinar and Anne Lambert (who played the virginal Miranda in Picnic at Hanging Rock) as Roy Baker's girlfriend. Cop Shopians will love this and salivate Pavlovian-style for the next installment. My DVD player is already booked (excuse the pun!).

  5. Poor old Roy Baker
    Posted by Greg G on 13/12/2017

    I have gorged on Cop Show Volume 3! All 26 episodes have been viewed and thoroughly enjoyed over a very short space of time. Hard to believe these episodes are 39 years old as the series is now up to 1978. I never ceased to be amazed at the quantum leaps the world has taken since this period. Back then, Taylor and O'Reilly's crew had to contend with no computers, no DNA, no cop cars with central locking, daggy police sirens, no google, mobile phones, social media, emails etc etc. Statements were taken on typewriters. Work was contained in manilla folders. Love seeing the red rattlers and the Harris trains (blueys). I know we look at the past quite often with rose-coloured glasses but I yearn for the simplicity of many aspects of this time. There are some superb episodes in season 3. The investigation into Georgiou's manslaughter of a knife-wielding felon is excellent. Poor old Roy Baker was also the subject of a lower profile inquiry after some gallantry at the local defending Valerie's honour, much to the chagrin of JJ. Poor old Roy also fell hard, both literally and romantically for an attractive fellow karate student played by the always delightful Anne Lambert. All but Roy could see inevitable heartbreak yet he completely misread the vibes and proposed to her. Gayle's growing pains, Valerie's incessant chatter, a major test of Glen and Pamela Taylor's marriage are all part of this suite of episodes. There are countless thugs, petty criminals and highly coveted analog colour TVs and microwaves as well as some hugely entertaining car chases to be had here. I must admit I never realised how amusing the banter between O'Reilly, Benjamin and poor old Roy Baker downstairs behind the charge counter was. It has stood the test of time. Mind you a uniformed constable as naïve, verbose and nerdy as Baker stretches credulity a little bit but he is always engaging. The exasperation of the other members of the force when he uses ten words when thee will suffice to make his point is hilarious. So it goes without saying that I eagerly await Volume 4. Better than Homicide? That would be Australian police drama heresy to suggest but It does boast a fine cast, sound production and a brilliant time capsule of Melbourne in the late 70s.
