Bergerac: The Assassin (BBC-1 2 Mar 1991, with Christian Burgess)

Published

on

In The Assassin a strange assignment for Jim sees him travelling to Brittany to work for a man called Hapgood who claims his life is in danger. Hapgood, who lives in a rather well appointed castle, turns out to be a former professional hitman for hire who now wants to give it all up – unfortunately for him his former employers do not want that to happen.

After one attempt on Hapgood’s life it’s very clear that not just Hapgood’s life is in danger but Jim’s too. It’s quite a moody episode but it’s hard to believe that a man like Hapgood would need Jim to protect him although we do learn that Hapgood has only chosen Jim to act as something of a decoy.

Even though Jim finds out the truth and is offered a way out by Hapgood he elects to stay and wait with him for the assassin to arrive.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
