Regular cast :
Mike Pratt - Jeff Randall
Kenneth Cope - Marty Hopkirk
Annette Andre - Jean Hopkirk

Programme Outline
Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are Private Detectives until their partnership seemed to be over,courtesy of a fatal hit and run accident involving Marty.
But that would not have made the series very interesting,so Marty came back as a ghost to help his living colleague to continue solving the various cases that they took on.
Jean kept her position as agency secretary even though she was widowed,and throughout the series we see Marty's attempts to contact her.(Failing every time!)
The only person that could communicate with Marty was Jeff,and we would frequently see Jeff talking to Marty,and then see it from an observers point of view and see Jeff apparently talking to himself.
Marty would help Jeff sometimes with his ghostly powers,such as sudden gusts of wind coming from nowhere etc.
So this was the basic outline of the series,which lasted for one season only of 26 episodes.
