The original Blue murder had people on the edge of their seats back in 1995. Both the main actor Richard Roxburgh playing Roger Rogerson and the director of the original series are back to make sure that this one hit’s the mark too. Toni Collette plays Rogerson’s wife and 95 MCTV actors appear in the two part miniseries too.
While there is dramatisation of the story, anyone who lived in Sydney from the seventies through to the nineties will recognise the story.
If you missed the first episode, you can get it on catchup at https://au.tv.yahoo.com/plus7/blue-murder/-/watch/36626637/blue-murder-killer-cop-sun-6-aug-season-1-episode-1/
I just wish I could find the original series somewhere online too. Luckily the old series is available in a 3 disc set at https://shop.abc.net.au/t/brands/blue-murder .
