Episodes Bergerac: A True Detective (BBC-1 14 Jan 1990, with Louise Jameson) Published 1 year ago on September 13, 2017 As A True Detective and the season opens Jim is stuck in Gibralter and Susan is now working in London although she very quickly ends up back on Jersey on business. Rather strangely it seems like the previous episode, the Christmas special Second Time Around, happened in it’s own little timewarp, outside of the events of what had gone before in the seventh season. Now Jim is back off his sabbatical and several months have clearly passed. He has made arrangements to stay with Charlie, who is less than thrilled when he learns Jim plans to stay for a few months! Events take a devastating turn, in one of the most shocking moments in Bergerac history, when Susan is found dead on the beach. Foul play is not initially suspected but it’s a far from ordinary death. Jim is naturally devastated, Barney makes it plain that he doesn’t want him getting involved in the investigation though. Jim being Jim he can’t help himself, Susan was due to meet two delegates from an African country’s board of trade. As Jim investigates he discovers that they suspected Susan’s parent company of possible fraud. It’s the key to unravelling the case… Definitely a storyline to set the cat amongst the pigeons, even if you do begin the episode somewhat annoyed that continuity has been played around severely in the previous Christmas special (which aired only a couple of weeks before this one so would still have been fresh in everyone’s minds). classic quote “Of course I’m shocked but it doesn’t mean my brain has stopped working.” production details UK / BBC One / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast 14 January 1990 Writer: John Milne / Production Design: Tom Yardley-Jones / Director: Richard Bramall Series: Bergerac Season 8 Episode 1 cast John Nettles as Det Sgt Bergerac Julian Wadham as David Russell Ann Thornton as Rose Louise Jameson as Susan Young Terence Alexander as Charlie Hungerford Peter MacKriel as Saville Glyn Grimstead as Taxi driver Simon Smith as Withers John Cater as Skebbins John Hart Dyke as Alan Woods Sean Arnold as Barney Crozier Sue Wallace as Alice Crozier Joseph Mydell as John Tetteh Louis Mahoney as Kofi Mensah Phillip Whitchurch as Sgt Gregson Max Gold as Dr Ackroyd Lisa Climie as Wendy David Kershaw as Ben Lomas John Telfer as Willy Pettit Tim Whitnall as Desk constable Juliet Douglas as Gill BBCBergeracJohn MilneJulian WadhamLouise JamesonPhilip WhitchurchRichard BramallTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes14 hours ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
