This is a story about a crook, Calvin P. Bream (Anton Rogers), trying to sell fake bonds to an even bigger crook, Miklos Corri (Kieron Moore).

Michael Gothard plays Miklos’ henchman, Perrin.

Calvin calls in Jeff Randall (Mike Pratt), of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) to try to get him out of the mess he’s got himself into. Marty Hopkirk (Kenneth Cope) helps out in his usual incorporeal manner.

They all spend a lot of time in comic deceptions, comic drunkenness (Calvin Bream is unusual in that he can see Marty Hopkirk when he is drunk) stake-outs, telephone conversations and negotiations, which is probably just as well, because the fight scenes leave something to be desired.

Like "Department S", "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" was filmed at Associated British Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England.

Both "When the Spirit Moves You" and the Department S episode in which Michael appeared, "Les Fleurs du Mal", were produced by Monty Berman, and had Frank Maher as stunt co-ordinator.

It looks as if Michael is wearing the same long grey coat throughout the later part of "When the Spirit Moves You" as he was wearing in the graveyard scene in "Les Fleurs du Mal."

Michael Gothard was to work with Mike Pratt again, when the latter appeared in an episode of “Arthur of the Britons”, “People of the Plough.” In that instance, it was Mike Pratt who played a bad guy.

Harry Fielder was an uncredited stunt double for Mike Pratt, and Michael Gothard was later to work with him again on "The Devils."
