Trivia

  • The first play, named McLevy when first broadcast, then Happy Land when repeated as the run-in for the later episodes, was written as a one-off drama, and the BBC don't include it as series 1. I've also see it listed as "The Spectre Of Crime", though I think that was by someone taking it from the description.
  • In the BBC provided descriptions McLeavy is often refered to as the detective or the Victorian detective
