Witches & Sorceresses 

Amanda Tucker - Apprentice witch (Catherine Hicks) who uses her clairvoyant skills and supernatural spells (which sometimes went awry) to help solve crimes on the detective drama TUCKER'S WITCH/CBS/1982-83.

Catherine Hicks as Amanda Tucker

Amanda and her detective husband, Rick Tucker (Tim Matheson) live on a farm in Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles with a Himalayan cat named Dickens (with whom Amanda communicates telepathically) and a goat named Myra.

Together, the Tucker's operate the Tucker & Tucker, Inc. detective agency. Their business office (555-6111) is located on 7000 Vista Del Mar Drive in Los Angeles. Marcia Fulbright is the firm's secretary. Amanda's mobile car phone number is 555-8734. Her home phone is 555-4616. The Tucker's first case involved the high-rise elevator murders of three women of which Amanda saw in her dreams.

Amanda's mother, Ellen Hobbes, who lives with Amanda on her farm, occasionally helped out her daughter on a case. Although Ellen was born into a family of witches, she is not a witch herself because such powers skip every tenth generation. Her daughter, Amanda, however was the first in the next cycle, so she inherited the abilities of a witch. Abilities that Amanda had not yet perfected.
