Bergerac: Prime Target (BBC-1 30 Jan 1983, with Anthony Valentine)

Published

on

In Prime Target Jim finds himself in France when a dead body turns up, the French police believe he is from Jersey. It just so happens that Charlie is also in France, doing business with Mrs Van Stratton. Van Stratton tells Jim that she the man at the Casino she and Charlie were at the night before and that she felt he was watching her.

Back on Jersey Jim discovers that the dead man was a private detective called Moberley who was working for the Carteret family of solicitors. Lionel Carteret (played by the always fabulous Anthony Valentine) the oldest brother has taken a back seat and the rest of the family want to buy him out but he has no intention of letting them. Moberley was working for the Carteret’s trying to find out whether the woman Lionel is seeing in France is only after his money.

It’s quite a convoluted episode really (especially the Van Stratton subplot which goes nowhere) but it does give Jim and Marianne the chance to go to France whilst Jim does some digging into the case. It’s also the catalyst for the two of them spending the night together.

Bergerac Prime Target

There of lots of well known faces popping up including Nickolas Grace as a French police inspector; Catherine Schell as Carteret’s love interest; Madge Ryan as an friend of Charlie’s who is hiding a secret and Tammy Ustinov as Lionel’s younger sister.

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.
