Bergerac: The Sin of Forgiveness (BBC-1 30 Jan 1988, with Susan Fleetwood)

Published

on

In The Sin of Forgiveness there is a major classical music festival (organised by Charlie naturally) is taking place on the island but Jim is otherwise occupied. A request from the uniform section to talk to a man, Aaron Rosenberg, who was arrested for trying to steal some papers from a records office leads him to taking on an extra curricular case teaming up with Rosenberg, who is a Nazi hunter and is convinced that one of the islands is a Nazi in hiding.

It soon becomes obvious to both Jim and Rosenberg that elderly musician George Draycott is indeed a former Nazi. This give Jim a real moral dilemma to deal with. Having seen footage of the atrocities committed by Draycott he wants to help Rosenberg bring him in but there is no real proof and, after having taken Barney into his confidence, would have little alternative as a policeman but to stop Rosenberg taking Draycott off the island.

Fortunately for Jim events are taken out of his control, Draycott’s daughter has discovered, via a book left to her by her recently dead mother, the full extent of the evilness of her father and decides to give her father up to Rosenberg herself.

Despite the subject matter it’s quite a low key episode but it does give underrated character actor John Bennett a chance to shine as Rosenberg.

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.
