Mystery/suspense series based on Robert Parker's "Spenser" novels. Spenser, a private investigator living in Boston, gets involved in a new murder mystery each episode. Using his years of experience, his natural talents for observation and reasoning, and the occasional bit of help from his friend Hawk, Spenser never fails to crack the case.Written by

I don't remember too much about this as a child, only that I used to like it, then I watched it on one of the many re-runs and it really is special. I always found Robert Ulrich to be a high quality actor. I'd see him in stuff on TV and refer to him as Spenser and my friends would say "who?". The series was very well acted and was different to the usual American cops show we were used to in the 80's. Spenser was a man of great integrity and Hawk his side kick was a man who might not agree with Spenser but would do everything in his power to support his friend. Just a very clever programme.
I'm sure it won't be long before we see repeats of the show on one of the sky channels, It will be worth buying Sky+ for. I won't miss an episode this time around and nor should anyone else.
