    Hi there

    can anyone remember a series that aired mid eighties about an Australian private detective, who for some reason was based in london.

    Why i have just remembered it, was in 1988 i rented an office above a cafe, in a small block, in west smithfield (before it became trendy) and that is where the detective had his office - so you would see him coming out of the old doors next to the cafe and sitting exactly where i sat near a angled window corner part of the old building (probably shot in a studio - but might have been in the actual room).

    I thought it was called 'the Australian detective' but can't see any reference to that name on imdb - also i can't remember the main star's name or anyone else in it.

    sorry not much to go on

    thanks

    martyn

    Took this the long way round, could recall the face but that was all so clicked on Mad Max 'cause he had to be in that and lo and behold it came up with Call Me Mister 1986 with Steve Bisley as Jack Bartholmew.

    Australian ex-cop Bartholomew (Bisley) goes to Britain when he discovers he is heir to a family title, not really getting on with his newly discovered family he starts working as a private Detective.

    Wasn't the intention to have a second series set Down Under? Which never happened...
