Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) is a British private detective television series, starring Mike Pratt and Kenneth Cope respectively as the private detectives Jeffrey Randall and Martin Hopkirk. The series was created by Dennis Spooner and produced by Monty Berman, and was first broadcast in 1969 and 1970. In the United States, it was given the title My Partner the Ghost. In Spain it was entitled El Detective Fantasma (The Phantom Detective). In the initial episode Hopkirk is murdered during an investigation, but returns as a ghost. Randall is the only main character able to see or hear him, although certain minor characters are also able to do so in various circumstances throughout the series. ITC Entertainment produced a single series of 26 episodes in 1968 and 1969, which was aired from September 1969 to March 1970. The pilot episode was broadcast on ITV in the United Kingdom on 19 September 1969 on ATV Midlands. LWT broadcast the pilot on 21 September 1969.

Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) - Jean "Jeannie" Hopkirk - Netflix

Jeannie Hopkirk (Annette Andre) is the young widow of Marty Hopkirk and serves as a secretary at the Randall and Hopkirk Private Investigation office. She is an attractive woman with neat blonde hair and a petite frame and build. Jeannie can prove a very useful character in Jeff's exploits and she has saved him many times from an early demise. She is highly resourceful and able as a secretary but often she appears as very naive and vulnerable, which has put her own life in danger on many occasions. In only the third episode, “All Work and No Pay”, she believes the tomfoolery of the Foster brothers as they use electronic equipment to pretend that the poltergeist of Marty is destroying her apartment. She believes that they are spiritualists who indeed have the ability to contact her deceased husband. In episode 8, “Whoever Heard of a Ghost Dying?”, she again believes the enemy when they pretend that Marty's spirit needs to be exorcised and, true to her nature, she is as helpful as possible in aiding them—unknowingly placing herself in another difficult situation. Later, in episode 15, “The Man from Nowhere”, Jeannie goes as far as to partly believe that an impostor is actually her deceased husband Marty in spirit, again emphasising her vulnerability.
