Night Watchmen -
The nickname of a group vigilantes on the legal
adventure DARK JUSTICE/CBS/1991-94.
The Night Watchmen was headed by Judge Nicholas
Marshall (Ramy Zada/Bruce Abbott), a district
attorney-turned-judge who was disenchanted with
the legal system.
When his wife and child were killed by a car
bomb meant for him and the perpetrator got off
scot-free, the Judge formed the Night Watchmen.
As the judge said, "Justice may be blind but it
can see in the dark."
"As a cop I lost my collars to legal loopholes.
But I believed in the system. As a D.A. I lost
my cases to crooked lawyers. But I believed in
the system. As a judge my hands were bound by
the letter of the law. But I believed in the
system....until it took my life away. And then I
stopped believing in the system and started
believing in justice." - Judge Marshall
Group members who helped the judge get those
criminals who got off on "legal technicalities"
- Catalana "Cat" Duran (Begona Plaza), an
- Jericho "Gibs" Gibson (Clayton Prince), a
special effects expert
- Arnold "Moon" Willis (Dick O'Neil), a
former forger and counterfeiter
- Maria Marti (Viviane Vives), an Interpol
agent who replaced Cat after she was killed in
The Night Watchmen
Outsiders who eventually discovered the group
and joined forces were Kelly Cochran (Janet
Gunn), a private detective; and Tara McDonald
(Carrie Anne Moss), the Judge's new secretary
and love interest.
