episodeof the popular 1969 ITCBritish television series Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)starring Mike Pratt, Kenneth Copeand Annette Andre. The episode was first broadcast on 9 January 1970on the ITV. Directed by Cyril Frankel.
Marty finds somebody digging around his grave. He sends Jeff to investigate the cemetery and in doing so is knocked unconscious several times by a masked 18th century

It is all part of a plot to inherit his father's fortune but when he marries his young housekeeper the plan is demised.

His extreme hair and his obsession for indoor paint throwing is also of amusing note.
Jeff flirted outrageously with Martha, Mandrake's housekeeper and later wife (
