couple of edits[edit]

ok i hope no one minds but im going to take out the bit that says " a white suit was superimposed over Pratt's clothes" this infact was not ture. in the original he really did have a white suit on.billy turner

Erm actually I mind... because it was Kenneth Cope who wore the white suit in the original, and not Mike Pratt. As Pratt had died by the time the new series was made, the producers decided to include a clip of him with a white suit - so that he could appear in one of the "Limbo" scenes. The original article was correct. Howie 19:38, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

yes but in the last episode of the original series there was a bit were jeff was about to drown in a river. someone was trying to revive him and when this was going on his ghost appeared in a white suit. they used this clip in the new series. so there was no white suit superimposed over him.billy

Episodes out of order on DVDs?[edit]

I recently got the Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) 8-Disc Special Edition box set and i realised that the episodes are out of order on the discs. For instance The Smile Behind the Veil (the series finale) is on disc 2 and not at the end of the series where it should be. Some episodes (such as the Pilot) are in the right positions.

Now i'm not sure if this is just my DVD or it's the same on all the others. Does anyone know? Should this be mentioned in the article or not?

Please someone reply soon. (talk) 14:09, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

The DVD are in production orderREVUpminster (talk) 17:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

The series overview is seriously flawed when it is realised the episodes are in no particular orderREVUpminster (talk) 22:14, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

PS If you view the episodes in production order they become more comedic due to the influence of Kenneth Cope and Mike Pratt, also Annette Andre's part is expanded. Source Andrew Pixley's bookletREVUpminster (talk) 19:52, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Note: On the original 2002 Carlton DVD boxset release the episodes were in the LWT running order, and as you say the newer Network boxset is in production order. (talk) 03:05, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

That isn't a Vauxhall Victor in the picture, it's a Vauxhall Ventora. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Earl Marischal (talkcontribs) 18:55, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Yeah, The Vauxhall Victor was also known as a Vauxhall Ventora and a Vauxhall VX4/90. Cheers! (talk) 21:49, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Reason for using LWT transmission order[edit]

Even the Randall and Hopkirk(Deceased) Declassified website cannot confirm transmission dates of the last two episodes of the series on ATV midlands in 1971, repeats seeem to have been shown before the final episodes, if at all. LWT remains the most consistant and verifiable Tx order at present. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:21, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

The dates and production numbers have been taken from the two booklets with the network dvd and do provide the best source but, errors have crept in due to probably mistyping by the author.It is a problem with all ITC series that were usually finished production before broadcast, had no continuity and except for the first episode could be shown in any orderREVUpminster (talk) 07:21, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
