Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) (1969)

Show Summary

U.S. title: My Partner the Ghost There's something different about this pair of private eyes....one of them is dead! Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are best friends and private detectives. The partnership is broken when Marty is killed in a hit-and-run accident while crossing the street in front of his home. 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.
