ace of wands, 1970

With his fancy sports cars and suave outfits, there was more than touch of Jason King to Tarot, the supernatural crime-solving magician hero of Ace Of Wands who had an owl called Ozymandias and battled the underworld with ESP and karate moves. Created by Trevor Preston and Pamela Lonsdale, made mostly in London on tiny budgets and including episodes by PJ Hammond (later creator of Sapphire And Steel), Ace Of Wands was first broadcast in the summer of 1970 on Thames Television and ran for three series.
