One of my favorite shows. I enjoyed Matlock much more than The Andy Griffith Show or Mayberry R.F.D. #7 - Daniel Roebuck played more than one character on Matlock. He played Dr. Bobby Shaw (The Doctors, Season 1 Episode 24 and 25), Alex Winthrop (The Ambassadors, Season 3, Episodes 2 and 3), (The Priest, Season 3 Episode 20), and a prosecutor Mr. Sodowsky (The Assassination, Season 6, Episodes 20, 21 and 22).

Another thing about "Matlock". Did he ever wear a different suit besides that light gray one?
Laura frenchman71 48 months ago
Yes one time he wore a black suit to court. He was so uncomfortable he changed as soon as his light grey suit got there.

I only saw a handful of Matlock episodes. I only got 7/15. It was good to see Andy give his longtime friends of TAGS some partime roles.
