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.

    A version of the car story seen elsewhere says that Jaguar were indeed requested to supply the (then new) E type as an ideal "typically British" steed for Simon Templar, also typically British in the early sixties, Jaguar were bedeviled with strikes and parts supply, and could not deliver on time. Commencement date was looming and finally Roger Moore volunteered his personal car, the now famed Volvo P1800, although stylish it was hardly the racy image needed (post production gave it the exciting exhaust note). For Volvo it was a godsend - the P1800 had been selling sluggishly in the UK, suddenly it was "cool" and sales rocketed and as a result production was extended past the formerly planned finish date. On the rare occasions the vehicle was actually on location on "real" streets it was technically illegal as the "ST 1" licence plate was registered to another vehicle (the cops turned a blind eye).

    Early episodes included the gimmick of having Roger Moore speak directly to the audience. Later, this was replaced by narration. In one early episode, an old woman guesses Templar's name ... she says his name must be James Bond. Roger Moore of course later went on to play 007.
