From Amazon.co.uk

The twist of this private eye show is that in the first episode, gumshoe Marty Hopkirk (Kenneth Cope) is killed off by the villains and subsequently pops up in an immaculate white suit as a ghost visible only to his hardboiled partner Jeff Randall (Mike Pratt). In theory, the streak of the supernatural--which meant a complex set of rules about Marty's appearances and effects on the physical world--should lead the show into wilder territory, but most episodes squander the unique team's unique abilities on ordinary cases about blackmail and murder-for-profit. A persistent subplot has the living Jeff getting cosy with the dead Marty's widow Jean (Annette Andre) to the discomfort of the ghost. The elementary effects and the nice underplaying of the leads have a certain period charm, and the show could afford a high calibre of special guest villains and dolly birds. A recent remake with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer hasn't obliterated memories of the original.

Volume Six includes: "The Ghost Who Saved the Bank at Monte Carlo" which concerns crooked dealings in a casino, with guest stars Brian Blessed and Veronica (Dracula Has Risen From the Grave) Carlson; and "For the Girl Who Has Everything" which has a psychic and a cursed castle, with Lois (Moneypenny) Maxwell and Freddie (Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed) Jones. --Kim Newman

Product Description

Episodes 3 to 6 from the cult 1960s series. In 'All Work and No Pay', Jean is convinced that the moving furniture in her flat is her late-husband Marty's (Kenneth Cope) restless spirit, but of course Jeff (Mike Pratt) and the ghostly Marty know better. 'Never Trust a Ghost' sees Marty convinced that a man has been shot dead in his London home after inadvertently witnessing the killing. However, Jeff's attempts to bring the murder to light are thwarted when the dead man turns up... very much alive. In 'That's How Murder Snowballs', Jeff uses Marty to help him form a variety act when he investigates the murder of a mind reader. 'Just for the Record' sees Jeff acting as bodyguard to a beauty contest entrant, but the job is not as simple as it at first seemed.

Meet the detective partners with a differance one of them is dead. Randall and Hopkirk can solve crimes like no other private detectives can. When doors are closed , Marty simply walks right through them. This is one partnership that is heaven sent. The bad guys in these stories don't stand a ghost of a chance. Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) appearing for the first time on dvd at this great price is a must buy for anyone who enjoys this type of show. Find out how the series began with the first two ever episodes of this great series form the late sixties, which is far better than the recent remake of the series starring Vic and Bob. Mike Pratt and Kenneth Cope work brilliantly together as Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk and watching this with the excellent quality of the dvd format brings a whole new life to this series.

If you're sick of the Avengers, are bored by the Persuaders and want to tell the Saint to go to heck, try this show! After catching Randall And Hopkirk (Deceased) on Nick-At-Night, I was dissapointed to find out that (1) it's not on video in Austalia (2) They only made 26 episodes. Well, now that it's arrived on DVD over in the UK, I'm afraid I'll have to multi-region my player and buy the discs! Mike Pratt is brilliant as Randall, the detective who always looks like he's been up all night, and Kenneth Cope (who has a VERY big filmography!) plays Hopkirk, who is the comic relief as the detective with one defective - he's a ghost...

5.0 out of 5 stars Whats is all about then? 22 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Well what can I say, Im only 20 but this show is a classic and anyone who thought Reeves and Mortimers was good, well you havent seen nothing yet! This programme is not just good because it stars a talented cast, its also because of the time it was set,in the late 60's and early 70's! The scenes and cars on show add to the classic, nostalgic feel of the programme. You have to see this!! I am hooked and after you see this, I guarantee you will be coming back to get all the other videos!!
"classic viewing!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Annette Andre is a hottie 24 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
One aspect of the series is Annette Andre, the co-star of this television program. She is definately eye candy and I recommend the series. Even better, I get to meet Andre personally at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Aberdeen, Maryland in September. I plan to get an autograph and have my picture taken with her. If you are not familiar with this talented and beautiful actress, this TV series shows just how good she is. Amazon.com has a great price so grab your copy today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detectives aint what they used to be ! 18 Jun 2002
Format:DVD
This DVD includes four fantastic episodes from a true classic of TV detective shows.
This original (for its time) format cannot fail to entertain, as Jeff Randall (Mike Pratt), the gumshoe that looks like he has a permanent hangover, is joined by his dearly departed ex-colleague Marty Hopkirk, who helps him solve a series of quirky, sixties-esque mysteries.
Hopkirk, played brilliantly by the wonderful Kenneth Cope, is now a ghost forced to wander the earth for 100 years with only his former partner as company.
Pratt and Cope compliment each other perfectly with, Pratt's dead-pan/sarcastic dialogue countered by Cope's childlike jokes and want for attention. Here in episodes 7-10 both actors are at ease with each other and the plots flow well.
This really is a refreshing change from the run of the mill detective shows from the 60's to present day and is highly recommended.
Reeves & Mortimers remake series pales badly in comparison - if it aint broke, don't fix it.
I hope you enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original and best 21 Dec 2003
By Tori
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Don't get this confused with the Reeves and Mortimer remake. I'm talking about the original Randall and Hopkirk. Made way back in the '60's, it has built up an almost cult following thanks to reruns. This video contains the first ever episode(1)and the best ever episode(2). Of course, the quality is a bit poor, the acting kinda wooden and the special effects quaintly amusing but c'mon, this was the sixties! If you enjoyed the remake, watch the original! I'd recommend it to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic TV that (almost) never dies! 12 Oct 2000
Format:VHS Tape
In my opinion, this is one of the best shows of the 60's and it's about time it was put on video. If you've never seen it before, buy it!
