Series cast summary:


Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are private detectives who specialize in divorce cases. Their long-running partnership seems to come to an abrupt end when Marty is killed by a hit-and-run, but Marty is soon back--as a ghost--to help solve his own murder. While he's doing it, he misses his chance to go to heaven, thanks to an ancient curse that states: "Before the sun shall rise, each ghost unto his grave must go. Cursed be the ghost who dares to stay and face the awful light of day." So Marty is stuck on Earth, as a white-suited spirit whom only Jeff can see, continuing their partnership and keeping (jealous) tabs on his wife/widow, Jean.

Did You Know?


The Vauxhall Victor 2000 driven by Jeff Randall was registered RXD 996F, while the Vauxhall Ventora seen chiefly in Department S was registered RXD 997F. Both cars came from Vauxhall Motors Ltd's publicity fleet and the Ventora actually appears in one or two episodes of R&H as well. More than one car was used as Jeff Randall's Victor during the filming of R&H - you can spot the differences by the colour of the interior - some scenes depict a black cabin, others a burgundy one. Fans wanting to track down the Victor may be saddened to note that it was last seen in a scrapyard in 1976. See more »


In most of the shows with stunt and fight scenes, the stunt doubles are obvious to spot and never resemble the people they're doubling. See more »

Wonderful TV Nostalgia
28 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw all the episodes when originally aired in the late sixties / early seventies. To me, then it was unmissable TV (I cannot count the times that I refused invitations because Randall and Hopkirk is on tonight). Over the years the memories faded until I noticed that amazon were selling the complete series on DVD, I have just watched all 26 episodes again. I love the acting and the way the comedy in no way detracts from the serious private eye case in question, I just wish they had made more. The recent attempt at reviving this genre by making a new series was a good chance to carry on the work, but it was an awful re-make, in my opinion the characters were just not believable.

As long as you don't expect too much from the low budget special effects department this series was Brilliant Stuff ! I will be watching it over and over.
