Magnum, P.I. was a 1980s detective series that aired on CBS.

It was set in Hawaii and starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a Vietnam vet who'd set himself up as a private investigator.

A remake was produced in 2018.


  • Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV
  • T.C. (Theodore Calvin)
  • Orville Wilbur Richard "Rick" Wright
  • Jonathan Quayle Higgins III

Canonical Crossovers

The show featured two-part crossover episodes with other crime shows of the day, including Simon & Simon and Murder She Wrote.

Robin's Identity

Like Charlie on Charlie's Angels, Robin Masters' face was never shown. As the series went on, there were increasing numbers of hints that Higgins, not "Robin", is the real author and owner of the estate. In the series finale, Higgins finally admits this but then later claims to have been lying. No definitive proof is ever given in canon.
