Carver had been dismissed from the NSW police force for refusing to discontinue his investigations into an unprovable murder that he witnessed.
He now spent his time trying to pin down big businessman and crime boss Sir Ian Mason (Ken Hunter-Kerr), whom 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).
Guest stars included Noeline Brown, Carla Hoogeveen, Judy Morris, Robina Beard, Norman Yemm, and Bill Hunter.
The original master tapes of The Spoiler were wiped and no copies of any episodes are known to exist.
