Bergerac: Weekend Off (BBC-1 25 Feb 1989, with David Troughton)

Published

on

In Weekend Off Jim has just that but Barney has other ideas, he wants Jim to act as escort for a prominent French electronics engineer, Anton Charry, who is due to give evidence. Jim has met Anton before and quickly realises the man he picks up is not Charry.

When it’s clear Charry has been kidnapped Special Branch men Walter and Rushden turn up and quickly make a nuisance of themselves with their arrogant ways.

Meanwhile there is a rare appearance from Debbie when Jim has to visit her in London after Charlie reveals that she was once involved with the Frenchman. It turns out that the trail to Anton also leads to London…

A decidedly not quite together episode, the most interesting bits are the scenes between Susan (who also happens to be in London) and Debbie, both of whom spend much of the episode waiting around for Jim. In the end when Jim is involved in a shoot out that could have turned nasty it is Debbie who runs crying into his arms whilst Susan stands in the background looking on.

Bergerac Weekend Off

It’s Deborah who is first to comfort Jim.

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.
