Denny Connell, a member of Gordon Haynes' pop group, dies of a massive heroin overdose on arrival at Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport.

Haynes is a 30-year-old pop star whose career has been a succession of hits and crashes. He has been written off many times but has come back - only to crash again. As the investigation progresses, it becomes clear that Connell was murdered, and many motives and suspects emerge.

      • 150 minute telemovie, originally intended as a standard episode, then as a 90 minute episode. Although inserted into the production schdule as episode 504, it wasn't produced as part of the standard series run, and was produced somewhere between episodes 470 & 480. Some scenes were filmed on location in London, England. The original title was 'Paying My Dues To The Blues'. The Homicide title does not appear, nor does the stock opening. This episode won a Sammy Award for Best TV Play (1976), Keith Thompson won a Sammy Award for Best Writer - TV Play (1976), and Igor Auzins won a Sammy Award for Best Direction - TV (1976). First acting role by Jon English; the soundtrack music is from his album 'It's All A Game', and the theme tune of the episode, 'Turn The Page', became a top 40 hit. HSV-7 screened this episode as 'Stopover: Australian Movie Special' in the Monday night movie timeslot, Homicide being in recess at that time.
