In the short lived but thoroughly entertaining crime drama series Zodiac Scotland Yard detective David Gradley teams up with sexy astrologer Esther Jones for six different from the norm mysteries.
Each episode was based around a different star sign and crimes were generally low key with the focus on the bantering nature of David and Esthers relationship. In fact it’s basically a two hander between a surprisingly trendy Anton Rodgers and the gorgeous Anouska Hempel who was one of those 1970’s glamour pusses who never quite made the breakthrough into major league stardom – she actually soon retired from the acting game altogether to take over the running of one of London’s top boutique hotels.
Writers on the series included Roger Marshall (who also created the show), Pat Hoddinott and Peter Yeldham. Guest stars included Jenny Hanley, John Rhys Davies, George Baker, Michael Gambon, Bill Maynard, Ian Olgilvy, Dinah Sheridan, Peter Egan and Michele Dotrice.
