Storyline

Harry MacGraw is a private investigator who appeared three times in the television series, Murder, She Wrote. He now stars in his own series, wherein he is still a private investigator in Boston. 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>

Spin-off of "Murder, She Wrote"
5 October 1998 | by MeeyumSee all my reviews

In this short-lived but delightful show, Jerry Orbach reprised his role as Detective Harry McGraw, as seen on "Murder, She Wrote" (1984). This character first appeared in the first-season episode "Tough Guys Don't Die," where he teamed up with Jessica Fletcher to solve the murder of his partner. Barbara Babcock also guest-starred in that episode, as "Priscilla Daniels," publisher and editor of Femininity Magazine (not "Ellie Maginnis"). Harry McGraw reappeared in the second-season episode "One Good Bid Deserves a Murder" (ep. #2.17).
