Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are private detectives who specialize in divorce cases. Their long-running partnership seems to come to an abrupt end when Marty is killed by a hit-and-run, but Marty is soon back--as a ghost--to help solve his own murder. While he's doing it, he misses his chance to go to heaven, thanks to an ancient curse that states: "Before the sun shall rise, each ghost unto his grave must go. Cursed be the ghost who dares to stay and face the awful light of day." So Marty is stuck on Earth, as a white-suited spirit whom only Jeff can see, continuing their partnership and keeping (jealous) tabs on his wife/widow, Jean.

- The white car driven by Mike Pratt was a "Vauxhall Victor FD". This was more or less unique to the Randall and Hopkirk show, but is commonly mistaken for the "Vauxhall Ventora" used in the Department S show and had a similar but different registration. The Vauxhall Ventora has a six cylinder engine, therefore a different sound and has a slightly different grill and lights arrangement at both front and rear, compared to the Victor. The Vauxhall Victor 2000 driven by Jeff Randall was registered RXD 996F, while the Vauxhall Ventora seen chiefly in Department S was registered RXD 997F. Both cars came from Vauxhall Motors Ltd's publicity fleet and the Ventora actually appears in one or two episodes of R&H as well. More than one car was used as Jeff Randall's Victor during the filming of R&H - you can spot the differences by the colour of the interior - some scenes depict a black cabin, others a burgundy one. Fans wanting to track down the Victor may be saddened to note that it was last seen in a scrapyard in 1976.
- Irish comedian Dave Allen turned down the role of Jeff Randall.
- Marty Hopkirk drove a red Mini registered BAP 245B, which was passed on to his widow after his death. Like most young men, Marty was possessive of his car and forbade Jeffrey Randall from driving it, even after he departed this world, as Jeffrey Randall was a hard driver and often got his Victor into scrapes during the course of his investigations.
- The series was not a hit on its first transmission in Britain. It had no network slot and was moved to different times and days at will by the TV companies. Some regions had it competing against the BBC's highly successful Paul Temple, and actually dropped R & H mid season due to the subsequent poor ratings.
- Kenneth Cope infamously wore his wig back-to-front in the first few stories
- Marty Hopkirk's white suit has no pockets as "ghosts don't need pockets".
