Charles Endell Esquire is a British comedy-drama series that is a spin-off of the series Budgie, with the role of Endell continuing to be played by Iain Cuthbertson. Due to an ITV technicians' strike which took the network completely off the air for three months, the first two episodes were broadcast in 1979 and the remaining episodes were not aired until May 1980. Only six episodes were made.
Charles Endell was sent to prison for ten years after the last episode of Budgie (TV series). The show starts with Charlie Endell returning to his native Glasgow after serving seven years (with three off for good behaviour). He plans to re-establish himself in Glasgow after his former business empire in London was broken up by the vice squad.
Back in Glasgow, he visits his solicitor, Archibald Telfer, to acquire his "rainy day" cash. Archibald Telfer apparently dies and the money disappears, but Charlie is convinced that the death has been faked.
