This spy/detective action-adventure series starred Anthony Quayle as freelance forensic investigator Adam Strange.
Strange was a retired Home Office criminologist who specialised in solving cases that had been left marked “open file” by various government departments.
He employed the latest techniques in forensic investigation, which he undertook in his own laboratory in his Paddington (London) flat.
Other regular characters were American researcher Hamlyn ‘Ham’ Gynt (played by Kaz Garas) and Strange’s neighbour, artist/model Evelyn McLean (former Doctor Who girl Anneke Wills).
Strange Report was a UK/US collaboration and has one of the most brilliant and evocative theme tunes of the 1960s. Only sixteen episodes of the programme were made.
