Bergerac: A Miracle Every Week (BBC-1 20 Feb 1983, with Art Malik)

Published

on

In A Miracle Every Week, faith healer Ravi arrives on Jersey to claim ownership of the Foundation that has been set up around him. Ravi has just turned 25 and is now legally able to take the role of Chairman.

His foundation is worth £2 million pounds and he wants to transfer the bulk of it to the Indian village he was born in. What he doesn’t know is that the men currently running the foundation, Hardaker and Wyatt, have been siphoning off much of the money in the trust.

They decide the only way to cover their tracks is hire a hitman to kill Ravi.

The second season has really hit it’s mark with each successive episode. Once again there is an excellent collection of guest stars with Art Malik as Ravi as well as the always good value Nicholas Ball, Zienia Merton and Denis Lawson as improbable hitman Giroux. Lil manages to get a bit of extra screentime in this episode too, meeting hitman Giroux on her flight back into Jersey after a holiday. He stays at the Royal Barge and she does her best to get him interested in her.

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.
