| to be fair only seen 1 episode.
My late father always said this series was dull. But I had no opinion until I watched an episode on the Randall and Hopkirk dvd boxed set.

I have only seen 1 episode (How to rob a bank) I am not impressed even allowing for the age of the thing. People on IMDB give it 8 out of 10 but nobody reviews it. I guess the people who remember it and like it are very old?

Anyway compared to old episodes of Special Branch or any of the ITC series I found this dull,despite Virginia Wetherall being in the episode I saw.

I would love to know what people liked about this in the mid 1960s,was it the clever script?
