Dick Emery's last TV roles, were in two six part Comedy Thrillers, Legacy of Murder (1982) and Jack of Diamonds (1983), in both series, Dick Emery played private detective Bernie Weinstock, as well as several other characters, in Legacy of Murder, Bernie Weinstock and his assistant Robin Bright (Barry Evans), are hired by a lawyer to locate six people concerned with the inheritance of an eccentric aristocrat, in Jack of Diamonds, Bernie Weinstock and his new business partner Norman Lugg (Tony Selby), were on the trail of some diamonds, hidden by a British soldier, during the second world war, I can remember watching both series, when they were first shown, but haven't seen them since, I have got copies of both series, on DVD-R discs, Glynn Edwards, appeared in both series, in Legacy of Murder, Glynn played a thug, in episode four, in Jack of Diamonds, Glynn played a character called Reg (who appeared in all six episodes), all the episodes of Legacy of Murder, can be seen on YouTube.
I remember one involving a shoot out on a cross channel ferry where Glyn's character shoots the wrong person (or is shot by mistake). I think Tony Selby was in it as well but seem to recall it was mostly about Emery's "Bovver Boy" character. A long time ago now so I've probably remembered it completely wrong!

I remember the two Bernie Weinstock TV series quite well. At the time, it was a departure for Dick Emery into comedy drama - prior to that, he normally did sketch shows.
IIRC the seasons (broadcast in 1982-83) received much media coverage, being considered an exciting departure from what Emery had done before, with quality co-stars and extensive location shooting, much of it abroad.
The second season was broadcast just after Emery's death.
