Roger Davis is the new Hannibal Heyes in the latest series of "Alias Smith and Jones" starting tonight (BBC-2, 8.0).

Pete Duel died tragically last year and the producers decided to continue the role, rather than create a new character.

Roger is a blue-eyed six footer who once taught law at California University. Acting was almost an accident. He took a job as an extra and later got a TV part.

He is relatively unknown as an actor, but had a successful career plugging products on TV comercials.

Now he will be plugging away with a six-gun for 17 programmes.

Tonight Heyes and Curry run into trouble when a rancher tries to cash in on the bounty money on their heads.
