Cold Case S02E22 – Best Friends Promo Updates


(Sorry for late posting, it’s so easy to forget what day of the week it is at the moment)

I promised no prison images this week.  Ta-da!

They are nice pictures too.  If you had to use one word to describe them it would have to be… brown :-)  The five new promo photos from the Cold Case episode that first aired 15 years ago today (8th May 2020), ‘Best Friends’, are large, high quality and a little different from the norm.  And brown.

Cold Case is generally about the people, their stories, and how they viewed events from their past.  The squad is not doing a lot of forensic work, other shows covered that extensively, and the evidence tends to be from the testimonies of the witnesses.  They often start with just a photo or letter.  This time they’ve got a whole truck and a CSU team all over it.  Though, even in this case it is a large muddy equivalent to a photo, to gett the ball rolling.

Kudos to the production crew on this for putting together a very convincing shot at vehicle dredged up from a river 70 years after driving into it.  Hopefully they didn’t wreck a proper antique truck to achieve the effect.

The case centres around the two friends, best friends, and the bones of one of them found in the truck.  Lilly and the team discover a relationship between two women.  Very taboo in the 1930s.  You’d like to think we’ve moved on a lot since then…

One of the stars of this episode is a young Tessa Thompson.  It is her first credited role in fact, though she has said that Veronica Mars was her first job.  Since then she’s been in Grey’s Anatomy, Heroes, Avengers: Endgame, the Westworld series, and will be returning to the Marvel Universe in another Thor movie.  Veteran actor Piper Laurie (Twin Peaks) also stars in this one, she actually was born the same year the portrayed crime was said to have happened.  For once the big name didn’t do it!

The new photos from this award winning episode are now in the KM UK Gallery.

The Big One… Oh…

In all the excitement of not being able to do anything these days I missed one of our regular anniversary posts over the weekend.

Amazingly it has been (more than) 10 years since Cold Case was last broadcast.  The series-ending back-to-back two parter episodes ‘Almost Paradise’ and ‘Shattered’ were first shown on the 2nd of May 2010, closing out a run of 7 seasons and 156 episodes.  A couple of weeks later it was made official by CBS that the show would not be returning.

Despite ending a decade ago Cold Case continues to feature here on KM UK.  We are just coming to the end of a series of promo photo updates from season 2, each posted on (nearly) the same day the episode first aired in the US plus 15 years.

And, we are still keeping up with the other main actors in the show as they continue their careers.  You can read about them in our regular monthly catch-ups.

Cold Case S02E21 – Creatures Of The Night Promo Updates


Anyone detecting a theme with recent promo photo updates?  It’s not planned this way, honest!

I know this is a cop show, and it is not unknown for them to visit people in prison, but to make such a significant part of two episodes running smacks of carelessness.

‘Creatures Of The Night’, first broadcast 15 years ago today, is one of Cold Case‘s episodes that stands out for two reasons.  The backdrop is a performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in the late 1970s, this means all the music is from the movie.  Secondly, the guest star is none other than Barry Bostwick, star of the very same film.  Of course, big star in key role usually means they did it!  That way they get to do the big dramatic scenes.

This time out we can bring you six more prison-themed new promotional photos that have been added to the KM UK Gallery.

No prison bars in next week’s very nice set of image, I promise.

Cold Case S02E20 – Kensington Promo Updates


This seems like a very appropriate set of images for the times we are living in.

Back in early Cold Case season one we had the episode ‘Sherry Darlin’.  In it James Hogan confessed to a murder that the squad determined he didn’t do.  He was locked up for being an accomplice in the crime with his then girlfriend, and actual murderer, Sherry.  What do you mean ‘spoiler alert’.  It’s been over 15 years!

It is not uncommon for TV cop shows to bring back killers seen previously but this was a little different.  In ‘Kensington’ James has contacted Lilly, who he clearly formed a bond with, to give information on another crime.  A relative of his died in 1985 and during a group counselling session, another inmate mentions something confesses to a minor crime which changes the course of events.

So, on the 24th April 2005 we first got to see Lilly and Scotty visit James in prison, something Scotty is less than happy about, not least because it was a long journey.  Our promo photo updates are taken from those scenes.  The first new image is not so new, but seeing as it is quite a different colouration and cropping, I thought it would be best to leave the original as well.

The 4 new photos are now in the KM UK Gallery.

Cold Case S02E19 – Strange Fruit Promo Updates

s02e19_still_003 <<<<<< 2m >>>>>> s02e19_still_001

Come on people!  You know the drill:  2 metres apart!

1963.  Remember then.  My guess is that most of you reading this (and the one writing it I hasten to add!) don’t.  Well, Will Jeffries (Thom Barry) in Cold Case does.  It was the year of his first murder… case.  He didn’t commit it!  As a young boy he found a body.  Can Lilly and the squad solve the case after all this time?  I think we all know the answer to that one.

15 years ago today (3rd April) the Cold Case episode ‘Strange Fruit’ aired for the first time in America.  To mark the occasion, as part of KM UK’s fifteen years later series, we have three new promo photos from the show to bring to you.  Find them all in Gallery.
