Cannon.

The eye-shaped window at the rear of his car used to fascinate me... as did the waves on his belly.

Cannon had a mean way with a karate chop - anything to avoid running after someone.

The Rockford Files was a good one.

Not only interesting but very forward-looking, given that Magnum PI appeared in 1980, nine years before the Walls Magnum.

I offer 'Brannigan' starring John Wayne. Not great, but it carried you along and there's the novelty (for the 70s) of a Hollywood star - albeit an ageing one - plying their trade in London/the UK.

My cousin was in the movie. Said John Wayne was a good bloke, not luvvy.

I never realised that show was named after a Mr Sweeney. You live and learn.

Makes you wonder how many others they tried before settling on Sweeney Todd.

Poirot and Miss Marple come readily to mind, which I guess says a lot about my advancing years.

There's always Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid (although Billy was his first name), Carlito's Way, Serpico, Alias Smith and Jones, Frasier and Lady Chatterley's Lover (new version out soon).

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Beg your pardon AS, I've just seen you already mentioned the Agatha Christie connection.

a classic

 



Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
