The Saint (UK)

Simon Templar is known as the Saint because of his initials (ST), and also because of his heroic exploits that fly in the face of an otherwise nefarious reputation. Templar uses a number of aliases, often using the initials S.T. such as "Sebastian Tombs" or "Sugarman Treacle".

    Leslie Charteris guarded the rights to his creation closely, and earlier attempts to televise his stories had come to nothing. Producers Robert S. Baker and Monty Berman were recommended by John Paddy Carstairs, who had befriended the writer whilst directing The Saint in London (1939) (and who would direct "The Saint" (1962) {The Arrow of God (#1.7)} and "The Saint" (1962) {The Romantic Matron (#2.18)} for this run); Lew Grade proposed a budget of £30,000 per filmed episode which also helped convince Charteris that Templar was in safe hands.
