    My brother's partner asks:- "I'm trying to remember the name of a television programme which I think was shown sometime in the 1990s. It was about a guy that lived in an old church building (I think) and he investigated supernatural mysteries. He had a girlfriend, she was a nurse and she lived in a flat with her son. Her son was intuitive to supernatural goings on. I can't remember the actor's name but he was quite tall with curly hair and quite a deep voice (he might have been Irish but I'm not certain)."



    All help gratefully received as ever

    It sounds like the 2003 BBC series Strange.

    Possibly Jonathan Creek? Alan Davies fits the bill although he lived in a windmill not a church. Caroline Quentin was his 'girlfriend' and she played a nurse in Men Behaving Badly.



    One or two of the episodes were quite supernatural.

    name='will.15']Was that a good series?


    Yes, very good and the nurse was played by Samantha Janus who, I now notice, has taken to calling herself Samantha Womack!

    Is it available on DVD?

    I recall the BBC fecked about with it at the time of broadcast - not repeating the pilot, changing the broadcast times at short notice and so on. I enjoyed it but eventually the powers that be get their own way.

    That'll be because she fairly recently married Mark Womack.



    Richard Coyle (Coupling) played John Strange - and the late, great Ian Richardson was also in it.



    It was a good series - it would have had to be to make me watch Janus/Womack!
