Consistent quality series
26 September 2006 | by woolcockSee all my reviews

This is a comment on the series of 'Cold Case' not an individual episode. Each week I am impressed by the way another period of time is reproduced as the setting of the crime - the cars, buildings, rooms furniture etc. The actors dress and hair do are always just so right for the times. It also amazes me how well the younger actors are matched up with older ones to show the passage of,in some cases many many years. I remember I thought this show would deal with unsolved cases just a few years old but some have been as far back as the 1940's and earlier . As a crime show this one stands out because of its unusual approach, extremely high production values and of course its excellent cast of actors who present their characters so believably. The background music complements the time of the case that is being investigated, so well. We hear songs that were played in the year that the crime story takes place. The script writers should take a bow as each week there is a totally new story, another cold case to create for our detectives to solve. The quality of the stories has been maintained - in fact I believe it has become stronger as a little more is revealed about our main characters' backgrounds. It is a show I look forward to watching each week. I was sorry this Monday night was the last of the current series.
