The series starred William Gargan (also played detective Martin Kane) as Barrie Craig, the lone private detective, who worked and solved cases from his Madison Avenue office.  Gargan actually worked in as a private detective, collecting agent; his duties ranged from doing stakeouts to working as a bodyguard.  He was shot while on the investigating a deadbeat customer. This life experience surely added to the Barry Craig actor, William Gargandepth of his characterization of Barrie Craig, Ellery Queen (three films) and Martin Kane.

While most detectives at the time were no nonsense hardboiled types, Barrie Craig is extraordinary due to his laid back personality.  He rarely gets worried even in life threatening situations, it takes a lot to ruffle his feathers.  Craig narrates the story much like Joe Friday in Dragnet and Sam Spade.

An interesting note: two Inner Sanctum scripts were actually reused in the Barrie Craig series.
