Star Cops 5 – This Case to Be Opened in a Million Years

When I first read the title of this episode I genuinely thought it would be a briefcase.

It’s actually kind of surprising the speed at which we’re burning through these episodes. Considering there’s only 9 of them it really feels like we just recorded episode 0 the other day, and in reality we actually just recorded episode 7. Which means in just two short weeks we’ll have watched and recorded an episode for every episode of Star Cops already. It’s also weirdly interesting that an episode that deals with radiation, and thus obliquely a half life, is halfway through the season. It’s This Case to be Opened in a Million Years, written by Philip Martin and aired on July 27th, 1987.

Stop classing Star Cops as sci-fi. It isn’t sci-fi. It is a police crime drama that just happens to be set mostly on the moon.

You should consider watching Moonbase 3 at some point. It is only 6 episodes. The series was missing for 20 years until the 6 episodes were found at a Canadian broadcaster’s archive. I think it was Canadian.
