Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) - Episode Sixteen: When the Spirit Moves You!
"When the Spirit Moves You" is the sixteenth episode of the classic 1969 ITC British Television Series, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) starring Mike Pratt, Kenneth Cope & Annette Andre. This episode was first broadcast on 2 January 1970 on ITV and was Directed by Robert Tronson.
Jeff becomes involved with a bumbling alcoholic conman named Bream and a stash of $125,000 of stolen bonds from the United States that a criminal racket are after. Jeff goes ahead with a deal to exchange the bonds that he and Bream have for $125,000 of the criminal racket's cash. When Jeff and Bream manage to double cross them they turn the tables and come within seconds of blowing up Jeff with the safe that he deposited the money in.
In this episode Marty finds that he is able to communicate with the alcoholic conman Bream (Anton Rodgers) but only when he is very drunk from whisky. This is also one of the first episodes where Marty physically threatens to haunt somebody as a traditional ghost would, to force him to give Jeff a helping hand.
