Bergerac: Burnt (BBC-1 23 Jan 1989, with Ronald Pickup)

Published

on

In Burnt wealthy financier Anthony Villiers is on Jersey but the Department of Trade and Industries are on his case believing him to be guilty of insider trading amongst other things. The Jersey Government have agreed to allow the DTI to investigate, with Jim acting as liason.

The DTI investigation is a large scale operation and Villiers is less than impressed that it is happening outside UK jurisdiction. He heads off to Sark, tailed by Jim, where he is clearly up to something. Unfortunately Sark is also outside of Jim’s jurisdiction however it’s clear that Villiers has set up a company on Sark using local residents to act as directors. Sark has no company law and the directors of a company cannot face prosecution. As Jim investigates he learns that one of the Sark directors, Anne Granger, is the key to bringing down Villiers.

Meanwhile the Jim-Susan saga is still dragging on, she is pretty much now refusing to speak him. Jim is growing increasingly tired with the mess around and gives her an ultimatum.

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.
