Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this British variation on the old "Thin Man" theme, John Stride starred as detective novelist Rupert Wilde, with Julia Foster as his wife Amy. Not surprisingly, on each episode Rupert got mixed up with an actual crime (usually murder), using his accumulated literary knowhow to come up with a solution. Equally unsurprising were the efforts by wife Amy to be Dr. Watson to Rupert's Sherlock Holmes, sometimes with amusing results. Created by Ian MacKintosh, the first of the 13 The Wilde Alliance episodes aired on January 17, 1978.
