Bergerac: The Lohans (BBC-1 9 Mar 1991, with Katherine Fahy)

Published

on

In The Lohans Rosa Zeenak asks Jim to act as a minder to a very valuable set of porcelain figures (The Lohans of the title) she has for sale. It’s a set of 16 figures that were stolen some years before (although Jim doesn’t know this) and hardline collector John Kelp wants them badly – however he is not prepared to pay the 1.8 million pounds asking price. He arranges for one of his men to break into Rosa’s, shooting Jim with a tranquilliser dart in the process. However Rosa had hidden one of the figure so he only gets away with 15 of the 16 figures.

Rosa persuades Jim to use the final figure as a bargaining piece with Kelp but when he meets Kelp he tells him the figure is a fake. Jim tries to get to the bottom of just what is going on and asks Lohan expert Gervaise to authenticate the piece he has. Gervaise passes him on to his colleague Mary Chester who confirms that the Lohan is genuine. Things get decidedly problematic when Mary turns up dead.

Meanwhile Jim doesn’t know he is being tailed by Ben Lomas. Inspector Deffand has got wise to Charlie’s interest in The Lohans (he is part of a syndicate that is also interested in bidding on the figures), once Jim finds out Ben is involved the two of them team up. There is then something of a showdown, involving Rosa, Charlie and Danielle, as well as Jim at Kelp’s country estate.

This is actually the final series episode although there is still one final feature length special to go. It’s actually a slice of classic Bergerac to finish the series off. At this stage Jim and Danielle are very much together and Jim also manages to make a fool of Deffand.

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.
