    Welcome to the Rumpole of the Bailey guide at TV.com. Horace Rumpole (played by the late Leo McKern) is an untidy, ageing London barrister with one glass eye who defends in criminal cases. His clients rarely cut elegant figures. He is fond of red wine, poetry, and fair dealing, and is not looked on as a great success in life by his wife, Hilda ('She Who Must Be Obeyed'). Rumpole has had a few triumphs, and the Penge Bungalow murders are often on his mind... Rumpole shares Chambers at Number 3, Equity Court, with a mixed group of barrister colleagues, including Guthrie Featherstone (Peter Bowles) and Phyllida Trant (Patricia Hodge). He also takes pupils - notably Fiona Allways (played by Rosalyn Landor) and Liz Probert. The creator and writer of the series, Sir John Mortimer, received an Edgar Allan Poe Award for crime and mystery for Rumpole.moreless

The bane of Stan's life is Inspector Cyril 'Blakey' Blake who is often checking up of them and threatening them with the sack for lateness and untidyness. His catchphrase is "I 'ate you Butler!".

    Welcome to the TV.com guide to Tales of the Unexpected. This collection of twist-in-the-tail stories of suspense, horror and black comedy (in the early seasons, all by Roald Dahl) was filmed by Anglia Television, a regional production company in the East of England. Each episode stands alone and has its own cast, and for two seasons each was introduced by Dahl himself from a fireside arm-chair. He took a back seat when most of the stories coming forward were based on the work of other writers. Tales of the Unexpected was an instant hit. It ran for nearly ten years, clocking up a total of 112 episodes, and in the UK it is still being repeated. Anglia sold the series to more than eighty other countries, and all episodes are now available on DVD as well as VHS.moreless

    Welcome to The Sandbaggers guide at TV.com.

    The Sandbaggers was a taut British spy series comprising twenty 50-minute episodes produced by Yorkshire Television. The stories centred on the elite covert operations section of British Intelligence, nicknamed the Sandbaggers, and their boss Neil Burnside, himself a former Sandbagger, but now having to battle more with British bureaucracy than enemy agents. It was set contemporaneously with its original broadcast in the late 1970s and early 1980s when the Cold War still dominated the Western intelligence agenda. Burnside's main operative (codenamed Sandbagger One) is Willie Caine, his most experienced agent. Burnside's main opponents in the series are not his KGB adversaries but the bureaucrats and functionaries of his own government, often his own superiors. He is constantly at odds his his Deputy Chief and occasionally with "C", the head of the Secret Service. Burnside frequently solicits unauthorised support or cooperation from the CIA's London station chief, Jeff Ross, and uses whatever methods, no matter how morally untoward, to protect his team or achieve his goal.

    The series was created by writer Ian Mackintosh, a former intelligence officer.moreless

After the funeral, Jeff is startled when Marty's ghost appears to him and tells him it was murder, not an accident. Marty helps Jeff solve the murder, but in the process violates an ancient curse -- "Cursed be the ghost who dares to stay and face the awful light of day / Ye shall not to the grave return until a hundred years be gone" -- and has to remain on earth for the next century. Since Jeff is the only one who can see Marty, the detective partnership continues, but with the unusual benefit of one of the detectives being invisible to the rest of the world.moreless
