Thinking about it, a bit of a silly thread as loads of programmes are named after the protagonist.

How about titles of programmes which contain a dead person? I'll start with Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).

I am confused by your last one, which character was called Emergency?

Just finished watching Ridley, not bad

Fort hose who had young kids in the 90s how about

Rosie and Jim
Teletubbies

I always thought the name "Doctor Emergency Ward 10" lacked any credibility.

1. McGyver ....so bad it was good

2. ''just one more thing " Columbo

3. TJ Hooker....the amazing Captain Kirk (91)was humiliating himself every week. Jeez that divorce must have been expensive.

4. Magnum PI.....interesting how a gun-toting detective was named after a Champagne Bottle or an Almond ice cream on a stick.

Regarding number 3, worth watching for Heather Locklear though

I had in mind "Ward".
Somewhere in the back of my cerebral matter, I have "The Grove Family" but this could be a figment of my imagination.

The Death of Stalin.

Does a political-moniker count as a proper surname ? Jughashvili just doesn't have the same ring to it. Not the same ring of steel.

and keeping up with the Cold War........The Bourne Identity

You're asking me what it's all about, and I can't tell you because I don't know what's going on myself.

Rowan Atkinson quite possibly one of the greatest human beings our country has ever produced, IMHO!
