The series started in 1962. Its hero is charming, intelligent, British and ready to fight the bad guys--[[Film/JamesBond not to mention played by]] Creator/RogerMoore. [[SurprisinglySimilarStories We're talking, of course]], about ''The Saint''.

After it finished in 1969, it was followed in 1978 by a revival titled ''Series/ReturnOfTheSaint'' starring Ian Ogilvy. Virtually identical to the Moore series (right down to the opening narration), except for being set in the late 1970s, the revival lasted a single season. Additional attempts have been made to bring Simon back to TV, the most successful (to a degree) being a series of Australian-made TV movies that were syndicated in North America in the late 1980s.

* PhraseCatcher: Right before the opening credits, somebody would always refer to "... the _____ Simon Templar." (Fill in the blank with 'illustrious', 'infamous', or something like that.) Which would cause Simon to glance up and note the halo appearing over his head.

* LargeHam: The episode "Island of Chance" has Dr. Charles Krayford (David Bauer) - a disgraced, reclusive scientist working to create a panacea to share with the world (using, of course, flasks of bubbling, coloured liquids and sundry interconnected glassware). He's utterly dedicated to his research, and earnestly chews the scenery whenever pleading his case. He goes all-out in his death scene, which ends up being rather narmy as a result.

** Moore was also the first choice to play Film/JamesBond in ''Film/DrNo'', but he was tied in to his contract to play The Saint, and they had to go with SeanConnery instead.
