Storyline

Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are private detectives who specialize in divorce cases. Their long-running partnership seems to come to an abrupt end when Marty is killed by a hit-and-run, but Marty is soon back--as a ghost--to help solve his own murder. While he's doing it, he misses his chance to go to heaven, thanks to an ancient curse that states: "Before the sun shall rise, each ghost unto his grave must go. Cursed be the ghost who dares to stay and face the awful light of day." So Marty is stuck on Earth, as a white-suited spirit whom only Jeff can see, continuing their partnership and keeping (jealous) tabs on his wife/widow, Jean. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

A beloved memory from my youth
16 December 2003 | by xphile11See all my reviews

Although I live in the US, I was fortunate to be able to see this series anyway. It was carried on a Canadian network and my cable company carried that channel. I saw this back in the early 70s and loved it. I've not seen it since then, so I only have fond memories to go by. However, I've noticed that Amazon.com is now listing this series in their to-be-released section. Unfortunately, it does not state whether it's the original series or the remake. I'm hoping it's the original because I'd love to see it again.
