Bergerac: In Love and War (BBC-1 18 Feb 1990, with Brenda Bruce)

Published

on

In In Love and War Karen Markham is helping a South African fugitive who is hiding out on Jersey. The law and order committee wants the Bureau to help track him down but Markham, a member of the committee and a strong anti-apartheid supporter and lived in South African for many years, is not sure they should be helping the Pretorian police.

Meanwhile Charlie tells Jim that he should go back to France to pursue Therese. When he tries to call Therese her father Albert makes it plain he wants Jim to stay away. So far he has been very anti-Jim in fact, whether that is more a personal dislike of Jim or the fact that he needs Therese’s help at the vineyard and he is worried Jim will take her away is hard to say.

Jim does decide to spend the weekend with Therese, which puts him in Charlie’s bad books (despite Charlie pushing him into it) because he wants Jim’s help (on the quiet) to bring in the fugitive. South African cop Scholes also arrives secretly on the island.

Once with Therese and her father Jim discovers the real reason for Albert’s dislike – he want’s the widowed Therese to marry his neighbour’s son (who also owns a vineyard) to bring two vineyards together.

Meanwhile there is a somewhat iffy subplot involving Ben Lomas and his attempts to improve his shooting skills and becoming quite obsessed about it in the process. Of course it turns out that by the end of the episode he is involved in a shoot out!

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.
