Randall and Hopkirk : Deceased

OK so I'm way too young to have seen this the first time around but most of the stuff I like came out way before I was born and I certainly like this! Story goes there were two private eyes, one was killed when working on a case but could come back as a ghost (exactly the same but with a white suit on). He was visible to only one person, and he picked his investigative partner. Don't be put off by the awful remake, the original is a much better show.

    Loved this show, alright the special effects were very basic, but you could really take to the characters.

    I loved the repeats in the 1970's and again in the 1986/87 repeats, great show, captures the 1960's london brilliantly!

    Loved this show - I'm a bit odd so it wasn't the ghost I fancied, it was Jeff Randall the 'live' one! So sorry to find out that he's passed away now. My mate and me loved this show and used to watch it together. The 70s had loads of this kind of stuff - 'The Champions' was also a kind of mystery-solving show with a supernatural edge. They don't make 'em like that anymore. If you watch one now it seems representative of the age. You can occasionally catch them on Sky TV, and spend an hour wallowing in nostalgia.

    Slightlyodd, glad you prefer the original - check out Jason King, Department S and Man In A Suitcase if you want more of the similar. Jeanie Hopkirk is gorgeous too Caz

    Excellent late 60's detective drama with a live struggling detective and a dead side-kick. Doomed private eye jobs, cool clothes and cars,sexy secretaries, reasonable acting, and a hint of humour.
