* [[SpiritualSuccessor Spiritual Predecessor]]: Many consider the 2000-01 series to be a prototype of sorts for the 2005 ''Series/DoctorWho'' relaunch. In addition to the obvious link of having Creator/TomBaker as Wyvern, as well as Creator/DavidTennant as the man who [[spoiler:kills Hopkirk]] in the first episode, many of the production team on the ''Randall & Hopkirk'' remake would later pop up on ''Doctor Who'', including writers Creator/MarkGatiss and Gareth Roberts, as well as composer Murray Gold.

It ran 26 episodes from 1969 to 1970 on {{ITV}}, starring Mike Pratt and Kenneth Cope. It had a {{Remake}} in 2000 (by [[Creator/TheBBC the BBC]], [[ChannelHop curiously]]) for a moderately successful 13-episode run over two seasons as ''Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)'' (note the ampersand), a much sillier series (though the original was silly, too... just not nearly ''as'' silly) featuring ComedyDuo Vic Reeves (as Marty) and Bob Mortimer (as Jeff). The revival series also added extra powers and Wyvern, a ghostly tutor for Marty, played by Creator/TomBaker.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Whatever Possessed You?", there are several references to a ghost known as "The Ice Maiden", along with the Faceless Lady and Burning Man we meet later. We never see this character or hear anymore about her, the only possibility suggested being [[spoiler: that this is landlady Virginia Carpenter's true identity.]]
