Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in both England and Europe, the weekly 60-minute British action series TECX starred Rob Spendlove as Chris Tierney, a former teacher and wine grower. Acknowledging Tierney's high intellect and crimesolving abilities, Italian criminologist (and Raymond Chandler buff) Fabio Cavalcanti (Urbano Barberini) asked Chris to help him establish a globe-trotting private-detective agency known as TECX. The new firm was answerable primarily to Brussels-based Souverain Associates, headed by Isabelle Souverain (Stephane Audran). Although Jenny Agutter is often listed as a star of this series, her role as Kate Milverton was more in the nature of a recurring guest character. Originally telecast on Britain's Central Television in 1990, the 13-episode TECX was syndicated in America to local PBS outlets beginning in 1994.
