Cold case police dramas seem to be a genre all their own. I can think of several.
Cold Case: dreary and formulaic, with unpleasant and unsympathetic main characters.
Cold Squad: the original Canadian show that Cold Case copied. More interesting, Julie Stewart was awesomely sexy.
Unforgotten: more recent, long drawn out, each case lasts 6 episodes.
Waking the Dead: took itself too seriously.
New Tricks: the best. Has a twist of a blonde detective in charge of a crew of retired detectives. Dennis Waterman hasn't got the spark he had as Terry McCann in Minder but generally the cast is good and cases interesting.
It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.
