Radio: The Adventures Of Harry Nile
A more modern (the series started in 1976 and new episodes are still being written today) take on the 40s/50s Private Detective.

This series features examples of:

  • Inspector Lestrade: There are several policemen Harry occasionally works with that qualify, such as Lou Butterfield who in one episode arrested him for a crime that Harry himself reported without even bothering to check if the victim was dead.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Harry, on occasion.
  • Plucky Office Girl: Murphy.
  • Sassy Secretary: Murphy.
  • Sickbed Slaying: In The Judge From Whiskey Dick Harry is almost killed with a shotgun blast, and then when he's in the hospital the murderer slips in and tries to overdose him on horse tranquilizers.
  • Trapped by Gambling Debts: In the first episode, Harry owes a gambling debt to a mob boss and is sent to kill a guy to pay it back.
