Bergerac: A Touch of Eastern Promise (BBC-1 7 Jan 1984, with Nadim Sawahla)

Published

on

In A Touch of Eastern Promise Charlie Hungerford is planning a major development on the island and has invited Saudi Sheik Zaki Monsoor to spend some time on the island in the hopes of persuading him and a consortium of his friends to invest in the project. However it seems other people on the island are not as keen by Monsoor’s arrival and Zaki himself has his own reasons for being on the island. A series of “accidents” make it look like someone is trying to get rid of Zaki.

Bergerac A Touch of Eastern Promise

There’s no actual police investigation as such, Jim just thinks something is not quite right about Monsoor and he is right of course. When events take a murderous turn Jim’s daughter Kim gets put in the firing line.

A good strong Charlie episode, for once the plot properly involves him rather than his character just being shoe-horned in. There are strong guest appearances from the always likeable Nadim Sawahla and Zia Mohyeddin too.

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.
