A remake of the 1969 Britcom. Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are partners in a detective/security firm. When Marty is killed in a car accident, he returns as a ghost to help his old partner solves cases. Only Randall can see his dead partner, though Marty is able to move objects through supernatural means. Written by
Having just seen the fourth episode of this new series I feel I can now safely say that it's the funniest show I've seen in years! Not being a Reeves & Mortimer fan (until now that is) I've never seen any of their comedy stuff, so I had no idea what to expect when it was announced they were doing a remake of Randall & Hopkirk. I am an avid fan of the original R&H series however and would be first to yell out if I thought they were making a mess of it. But they're not. It's a fantastic updated version of what was a fantastic 'cult' show; it's NOT a remake, more of a homage. It's fantasy, it's fun, and that's the whole point of the show! I can't wait for the second series. Nice one Vic and Bob.
