Many Lives Of Albert Walker

Detective drama The Many Lives of Albert Walker told the story of DC George Meyrick who attempts to solve the murder of a man fished out of the sea by some local fisherman. The trail leads to Canadian Paul Morrow, living in Britain, who is not what he seems and Meyrick uncovers many different identities that Morrow, whose real name is Albert Walker, has been living under.

Based on a true story. A British/Canadian co-production. Note: Albert and Suzanne Walker are credited as Paul and Helen Morrow in listings (their first discovered pseudonym) so as not to give the game away. The end-credits showed them as the Walkers.
