Bergerac: On The Rocks (BBC-1 9 Feb 1991, with Helen Fitzgerald)

Published

on

In On The Rocks Charlie wants Jim to accompany him on a trip to France for a birthday party for very old friend Constance Battiston. The Battiston’s are clearly going through financial difficulties and matters get seriously out of hand when a very valuable diamond necklace is stolen on it’s way to the bank.

Constance’s grand-daughter Camilla has become involved with the none too trustworthy Englishman Jeff and as Jim looks into the theft he is sure that both Camilla and Jeff are somehow involved.

Although it’s fairly obviously almost immediately what is going on, indeed we soon learn what Camilla and Jeff are upto, it still makes for an entertaining episode. Also despite all the goings on it is the elderly Constance who has played them all.

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.
