Synopsis for Spooks: "The Skeletal Return of Professor Willard"

Professor Oscar Willard learns that Mr. Schorr is embezzling from the Scholarship Fund of the college that employs them, and confronts him about it. Schorr pulls a pistol out of his desk drawer and shoots Willard dead.

In the Afterlife, Willard protests that he's much too busy to be dead because he hasn't yet stopped Schorr from embezzling the funds. The Keeper Of The Gate accepts this argument, and sends Willard back to Earth, on the condition that he should stop as much evil as he can. He's accompanied by the heavenly Messenger Boy who conducted him from the scene of his murder to the shining gates, and on Earth, several months have passed. Oscar Willard's skeleton has been preserved, per his instructions, as an educational exhibit in the Anatomy Department. His spirit enters into the skeleton and animates it. He learns from a drunk janitor that expelled student Jimmy James has been framed, by Mr. Schorr, for Willard's murder, and is scheduled for execution at midnight that very night!

Spooks encounters James' grief stricken girlfriend Vivan and, from hiding, reassures her that everything will be all right, then visits Mr. Schorr at his home. Schorr is counting down the minutes to midnight, and gloating it up with evil glee, when the skeleton of his dead colleague climbs in thru his open window and confronts him. Schorr does some useless shooting then sprints down a long staircase, but Prof. Willard's Messenger Boy trips the fleeing murderer, and Willard grabs him and terrorizes him into confessing. A cop happens along and listens to Schorr's babbling, as Spooks sprints to the State Prison. That's too slow, so he steals a taxi, but the skeleton makes it to the prison, barely in the kick of time to stop the execution switch from being thrown. And "short minutes later" the authorities are busy setting Jimmy James free, and his girlfriend has shown up at the prison too.

Synopsis for Mr. Scarlet: "Murder Without Clues"

To prevent leaving clues, a murderer poured molten lead into a blackmailer's ear. Then to cover his tracks, he broke into the Special Prosecutor's office and stole his own police record (one copy of it, anyway) from Brian Butler's files. This backfired on him; Mister Scarlet soon figured out who it was and turned him over to the police.
