spoiler2This Nine Network (Australia) drama featured Bruce Barry (ex-Bellbird and The Mavis Bramston Show) as Jim Carver, the Spoiler of the title.

Carver, a policeman dismissed after seeing an unprovable murder, spent his time trying to pin down the big businessman he witnessed committing the murder.

His two great allies were his barmaid girlfriend Marie (Carmen Duncan) – who worked at a pub called The Ten Commandments in Sydney’s Surry Hills area – and his former partner, Detective Sergeant Eric Evans (Slim DeGrey).

The original master tapes of The Spoiler were wiped and no copies of any episodes are known to exist.
