as Julian Cannell
Hunky, bedroom-eyed Julian was the most unlucky man in Somerset.
Initially a concert pianist, he gave up the ivories for jealous wife Zoe. When she went insane and was confined to an asylum, Julian became editor of The Somerset Register , a local newspaper and fell in love with gun moll Chrystal Ames. Julian managed to reform Chrystal just in time for her to get murdered by his demented ex-wife, who launched a spectacular escape from the nuthouse. Next, he fell in love with lovely Eve Lawrence, but she turned out to be frigid, so he allowed himself to be seduced by his publisher sexy Kate Thornton. When Kate secretly aborted his baby, Julian moved his attentions back to Eve while being pursued by the beautiful-but-deceptive Victoria Paisley... herself carrying on with married man Tony Cooper.
In 1976, Julian attempted to expose a powerful crime syndicate which threatened to assume complete control of Somerset. The head of Somerset's mob turned out to be inveterately unlucky Julian's new publisher and friend Dan Briskin, who ordered his murder. Julian dodged the bullets, busted Dan, and, in the final telecast, appeared to finally find happiness with the reformed Vicki Paisley.
