Blue Murder: Killer Cop, Seven
Starring: Richard Roxburgh, Toni Collette, Dan Wyllie, Aaron Pedersen, Matt Nable, Emma Booth
Killer Cop is the 20-years-later sequel to the highly acclaimed ABC drama Blue Murder (1995), which finished with crooked cop Roger Rogerson being expelled from the NSW police force. Richard Roxburgh reprises his role as Rogerson, who was recently jailed for the murder of 20-year-old student Jamie Gao, and he’s joined by a stellar supporting cast.
This is about as contemporary as drama gets: Roxburgh was on location in Sydney as the murder trial was taking place earlier this year. If it’s half as good as Blue Murder, it will be well worth a look.
