It was never a show! or a TV series! it was a cinema film series which was then sold to America as a TV series, and now everybody (for some reason) lists it as a TV series rather than a series of films!! But it was first released to British cinemas by Anglo-Amalgamated as second features between 1962-7, sometimes as a companion to the 'Carry-on' films. Most of the films are very enjoyable, as well as seeing actors like Steptoe & Son's Harry H. Corbett doing something totally different!, in his doing a straight role as a police inspector rather than his usual comedy or seeing Londoner Sir Michael Caine in 'Solo For Sparrow' (1962), with an Irish accent!! What else is new? These were over 30 features made for the 'Edgar Wallace' film series but then (for American TV) it was filled up to 50, so how many are true Edgar Wallace??? Writers like Richard Harris and Roger Marshall have said that none of the films were based on Edgar Wallace stories, but were all original in the same way as the colour series of 'The Saint' with Roger Moore that wasn't based on any Leslie Charteris' stories. It's also good to watch to see future stars at the start of their careers in small roles e.g. Wanda Ventham as a waitress in 'Solo For Sparrow' (1962), future 'Eastenders' and 'Carry On' star Barbara Windsor, as well as Kenneth Cope from 'Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)' and Barbara Shelly in 'Deathtrap' (1962) with Kenneth Cope again in 'Change Partners' (1965). Great to watch.
