Who always seems to lose all of his money betting. Across the hall from him is the office of Ellie Maginnis, an attorney. It seems that Harry did some work for her late husband, and it seems he swore by Harry, so she uses him though he usually goes through the wringer to solve the case. Helping him out is his niece, who is the receptionist in his office, and also lending a hand is Maginnis' nephew, who is an associate in her office. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

A spin-off of "Murder, She Wrote" (1984)
6 October 1998 | by (Alexandria, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

This short-lived but delightful show was a spin-off of "Murder, She Wrote" (1984). Jerry Orbach first appeared as Detective Harry McGraw in the first-season episode, "Tough Guys Don't Die," in which he teamed up with Jessica Fletcher to solve the murder of his partner, Archie Miles (played by Floyd Levine). Barbara Babcock also guest-starred in that episode, but as "Priscilla Daniels," Publisher and Editor of Femininity Magazine, not as "Ellie Maginnis." Jerry Orbach reprised the role of Harry McGraw in "Murder, She Wrote," in the episode "One Good Bet Deserves a Murder " (ep. #2.17).
