The reviews of this Region 1, NTSC DVD on the sister site,, state that this set includes only 13 of the 26 episodes of the series (presumably, with the other 13 to follow if the powers that be find themselves satisfied with the sales of the first "set"). The reviews do state that the transfer is good.
For my money, I would prefer the Region 2 PAL edition to this one.

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. has a great price so grab your copy today.

This series was a true original! 25 Jun. 2004
By Robert Cossaboon - Published on
Welcome to the world of Randall and Hopkirk, Deceased. I can remember when I was very small how this series was once ran on my local TV station in the States as My Partner, The Ghost. At the time it seemed very somber and I can remember feeling a little uneasy from the general mood of each episode.....ok, I was scared. Boy, I never knew how good I had it until I purchased the first volume of this treasure trove! R&H is an interesting alternative to the other popular series of the time such as the Avengers, the Prisoner (despite its mere 17 episode run), I Spy, and the Man From U.N.C.L.E. For my money it's also got the coolest theme song going-but then I'm prejudiced in favor of the harpsichord. I think what set this series apart was the seedy approach it took to fighting crime. For the most part, the villains are not megalomaniacal masterminds trying to deep-six their own country. These guys usually go the route of murder and the stakes are usually some small financial potatoes, relatively speaking. Also, our heroes are always just barely making ends meet; they always seem to find another case just in the nick of time to avoid bankruptcy for another episode. Additionally, the character of Jeff Randall is more of an anti-hero than anything else-his priorities are money, women, and keeping the job afloat; somewhere in there is a sense of justice mixed in, but it's very low on the priority scale! But in my opinion, the nervous, anxiety-fueled character of Marty Hopkirk (played by Kenneth Cope) and how he interacts with his live partner, Jeff, as well as deals with the day-to-day stresses of the job (such as murder!) is what drives this series. Need other reasons to try this series? How about the pristine transfer! I agree with the Great Lakes reviewer that Marty the ghost is sometimes difficult to see, but that could've just been because of back-then production shortsightedness. There are extras: a cool picture gallery, and a nice little History Channel ditty. A&E get a truckload of thanks for championing this forgotten series and giving it the resurrection it so richly deserves! Now about the Night Stalker series?????

Better than I expected. Now fork over set 2 ! 7 Jan. 2006

Has anyone bought this that didn't have vague fond memories of watching this (My Partner the Ghost) as a child? I too am in that boat.

I feared watching this might spoil my memories. Fortunately I find I had fine taste as a youngster, because this show was very enjoyable as an adult. This time around it seemed less eerie, and was more nostalgic, campy fun.

This is the story of a pair of detectives, Jeff and Marty, one of whom is murdered on a case. Thankfully the only sad part in the series happens right away. Marty promptly returns to help Jeff, and also keep an eye on his widow Jeannie, now working in the office with Jeff. Naturally part of the fun is that only Jeff can see Marty (with a couple rare exceptions).

The premise holds up, thanks to actors who seem to have just the right touch, and the show is as entertaining as it sounds.

The stories are all pretty light, even when murder is involved. The plots are kind of small-potato Avengeresque. A plotting, sinister, bad-guy taking over an inheritance, rather than a mad/sinister agency attempting to take over the world.

The fact that one of the private detectives is a ghost leaves an anything-can-happen feel. While a lot of far-out adventures occur, it never goes beyond the great-beyond for supernatural storylines. In other words, they don't get into sci-fi (aliens), or horror movie type(vampires) plots. It happily sticks to a private-eye mystery show with a fun twist.

I enjoyed this as much as when I caught some Ellery Queen and Banacek re-runs a few years back (other long-lost childhood detective heroes).

I have seen this was released in England as an entire set of 26 episodes. We know the next 13 are out there, so come on A&E, put them out already.

Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Set 1 9 Oct. 2004
By Reno - Published on
Where is Set 2? This series brings back many memories when it aired as My Partner the Ghost in the states years ago. I would complete the collection. I don't really know why, but I thoroughly enjoy watching these episodes repeatedly.

Found My Partner the Ghost 26 Feb. 2006
By Louise Nowlin - Published on
Verified Purchase
I first watched this series known as "My Partner The Ghost" on channel Nine in Los Angeles in the mid seventies. I was thrilled to finally find it and purchase for viewing. Not only is it entertaining, it is a historic representation of London in the late sixties.

So where is Set 2? 4 Jan. 2006
By Kenneth E. Black - Published on
Verified Purchase
This was one of my favorite shows from the 60's, and I bought Set 1 as soon as it was released, and have been waiting somewhat impatiently ever since for Set 2. When is A&E going to grace us with the rest of the series?
