Malcolm, Mr. Mr. Malcolm was created by Gerard Fairlie (Victor Caryll) and appeared in Shot in the Dark (1932), Mister Malcolm Presents (1932), and Men for Counters (1933).

Mr. Malcolm is a cheerful, middle-aged Englishman whose beloved hobby is golf. He’s naturally friendly, and easy to talk to, and somehow strangers, even Scotland Yard detectives, find themselves telling Mr. Malcolm things, such as the strange outcomes of local murder cases. And Mr. Malcolm tends to look into these cases, somehow managing to be in the right place at the right time, or, if luck isn’t with him, manipulating circumstances and people so that he will be in the right place at the right time. He is clever, and thoughtful, and so obviously harmless that everyone is gulled by him.
