In Ice Maiden, local businessman George Thomas is hosting a VIP party at which he intends to auction off a wealthy diamond. The Bureau are very interested when suspected diamond thief Philippa Vale arrives on Jersey.

Jim is tasked with the job of keeping her under surveillance but she is soon leading him a merry dance and with practically every policeman on the island otherwise occupied Vale focuses on an altogether different collection of diamonds.

The first of several appearances over the course of the series by Liza Goddard as Philippa Vale. The press tended to make a huge fuss about her appearances on the show and the will they won’t they nature of her relationship with Jim. She has a nice line in banter with Jim right from the get go and despite not quite getting away with the diamonds she does get off the island and to freedom.

Jennifer Guy had appeared in Bergerac before, in the season two opener A Message for the Rich. In that episode she played a character called Dorinda.

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.
