Friday's Favorite OTR

The Bishop and the Gargoyle: “The Jennifer Bots Case” 7/14/40

The Bishop is a retired missionary, while the Gargoyle is an ex-con who now works for the Bishop. Naturally, they solve crimes. A retired priest and a former crook? What else could they possibly end up doing?

The show ran for several years, but this is apparently the only surviving episode. It’s a pretty good one, too. The Gargoyle meets a damsel in distress—a young woman who was just conned out of her life savings. When the self-described “former lug” and the Bishop investigate, though, the apparently simple case snowballs to include kidnapping and murder. There’s also a mousy but heavily armed museum director who pops up at inconvenient moments, looking for something very valuable.

It’s a good mystery with a pair of interesting protagonists who play nicely off of each other.
