A classic British light entertainment detective mystery was Randall & Hopkirk ( deceased). Transmitted in ’69 it starred Mike Prattle & Kenneth Cope as the respective titular characters. Marty Hopkirk met an untimely demise in the pilot show and, dressed in a ghostly white suit, could only be seen and heard by his partner Jeff Randall.

Some still images from village scenes or London streets with some Triumph Cub riding character show period rural and urban scenery. The leather blazer and pudding basin lid set the tone.

There was a remake in the early 200p’s starring Vice Reeves & Bob Mortimer.
