Raffles

Show Summary

Welcome to the Raffles guide at TV.com. A. J. Raffles is a dashing late-Victorian English gentleman of impeccable credentials - a member of the very best clubs, a first class cricketer, a resident of London's ultra-pukka Albany. However, his social standing is just not matched by his private income, and in the absence of funds Raffles has adopted the career of 'amateur cracksman' to the nobility and gentry - that is, jewel thief. Harry 'Bunny' Manders is an old school friend of Raffles and is equally hard up, so he becomes a partner in the adventure of stealing from the rich to give to - well, to pay one's wine-merchant's and one's tailors' bills, anyway, and perhaps one's rent and one's gambling debts. Bunny is not altogether as bright as Raffles, but nevertheless he is more of a help than a hindrance, saving the day on more than one occasion. The pair do not see themselves as common criminals. Apart from a little honest thievery, they maintain high moral standards, and on occasion do a little detective work - or even crime-fighting - of their own. Inspector MacKenzie is the policeman with the job of catching the amateur cracksman - so once A.J. Raffles has come under his suspicion, MacKenzie has to be outwitted. Based on the stories by E.W. Hornung.moreless
