Bergerac: Retirement Plan (BBC-1 27 Dec 1988, with Nicholas Ball)

Published

on

In Retirement Plan Charlie is in Spain looking at a possible new marina franchise deal and finds himself with a pair of very dodgy gangsters. Gravel Beresford and Raoul Fuegas are determined to get themselves a part of Charlie’s deal and as Charlie’s lady friend in the area Eva Southurst says “nobody turns Beresford down”. When Beresford and Fuegas start giving Charlie trouble he asks Jim to travel to Spain to help him.

Meanwhile a pair of thieves are on the island and giving the Bureau the runaround.

Bergerac Retirement Plan

Nicholas Ball and James Laurenson as the none too pleasant Beresford and Feugas.

Jim and Susan seem to be getting on a lot better now. Susan is involved in the selling of the expansive home of elderly Miss Amberton, her rather strange gardener Gully is very disturbed by news of the sale.

Another strong script from the brilliant Edmund Ward, despite the gap of several months (between the end of season six and this Christmas special) this was his second script in a row for the series.

Bergerac Retirement Plan

Carmen Du Sautoy plays Marie Chantel, one of the expert thieves hitting the island.

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.
