Bergerac: Whatever Lola Wants (BBC-1 2 Jan 1988, with Ann Mitchell)

Published

on

In season six opener Whatever Lola Wants prominent supergrass and robber Reggie Betts arrives on the island to be looked after by the Bureau. Jim and Willie are also tasked with bringing over his mother, Lola, from London.

Jim and Susan are still having a hard time communicating, matters not helped by the fact that Jim is Lola’s personal minder for the duration of her stay on the island. Lola has her own reasons for wanting to be on the island, as do several major London villains who are convinced Reggie has stolen loot hidden somewhere on the island.

Any episode featuring the fabulous Ann Mitchell, who plays Lola, is going to be completely owned by her and such is the case here. The Jim and Susan relationship woes continue and it’s clear this is going to take some playing out.

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.
