Bergerac: Warriors (BBC-1 23 Feb 1991, with Ursula Howells)

Published

on

In Warriors, Norman, an old friend of Charlie’s asks for Jim’s help when his wife Laura becomes involved with a cult called The Atlanteans who firmly believe in the reality of Atlantis.

Jim heads to their UK base and goes undercover at one of their Atlantian Experience weekends. He finds himself curiously drawn to the people at the Fellowship.

Norman thinks Jim isn’t doing enough and sacks him, Jim decides to stay on for the weekend anyway. Laura remembers that she has seen Jim before and also remembers that he works (or worked anyway) for the Bureau. Norman then turns up with a henchman in tow and is determined to take Laura back to Jersey with him. Jim, along with a couple of other fellowship weekenders show him the error of his ways.

Another foray into the otherworldly for Jim, at times the setting and scenes make it feel like a Ghost Story for Christmas but the over the top Norman provides some comic relief. One of only two episodes that doesn’t feature an appearance by Charlie.

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.
