The hero of Becker: House Detective, another CBC radio series, BECKER clues us in on his lot in life:
"The Queen of the Rockies. A Grand Hotel. About the last thing you'd expect to find in the Rockies in 1923, but then I may be the last thing you'd expect to find in a Grand Hotel. I'm the House Detective. Becker's the name. Just Becker."
So he's a 1920s house dick who, like the hotel, is a little out of place. It seems Becker has a few surprises in his past: a fancy pants eastern education (which, even then, must have gone over real well in Alberta), a stint as a mountain guide, of all things, and a tragedy that haunts him. and so he throws himself into his work, trying to protect the hotel and its guests from all sorts of trouble. And oh what guests! Film stars, American senators, European explorers, con men, flappers and maybe, just maybe, a gangster or two. Through it all, Becker tries to keep as cool head.
