Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul reunited after many years and were captured in a photo which has gone viral as “Starsky” is seen pushing frail “Hutch” in a wheelchair.

It's been almost 40 years since Paul and David became world famous with their detective series which saw the duo - now both 73 years old - tearing around the fictional Southern Californian town of Bay City in their Ford Gran Torino.


The former co-stars - who were joined by Antonio Fargas, who played Huggy Bear - spoke out about their time on the show at the Liverpool Comic Con held over the weekend.

They said they have managed to remain the best of friends since the last episode. David - who has become rather frail in recent years and now uses a stick to get around - told the audience: "One thing that's great is that three of us have remained really good friends and that's very rare and I'm really grateful for that,” the Express reported.

Paul added: "Clearly even today, there's something that resonates with people when they get a chance to experience a relationship between people that has some depth to it."

The show aired between 1975 and 1979.
