Turtle’s Witch

SPURIOUSLY WEIRD US comedy drama about a husband and wife detective team, the twist being that she is, yup, a witch. Technically she has somewhat unpredictable psychic powers like psychometry and telekinesis, conveniently low budget enough to avoid a grotesque outlay on special effects (hence much pointing and things falling down, or holding an object and having psychic flashes). She was played by CATHERINE HICKS and her hubbie was TIM MATHESON. By aiming low it didn’t come over too badly. Plus without the pre-credit sequence, each episode was a whodunnit. Grampian showed it with the teaser, STV showed it without.
