Bognor: Deadline (ITV 3-19 Mar 1981)

Published

on

In Bognor’s second case Deadline he goes undercover at Daily Globe’s newspaper’s diary column when the previous “Samuel Pepys” columnist is murdered. Bognor fits right in with the rest of the column staff and even acquits himself in the writing game (once he remembers to “lose the adjectives” that is.

A second murder and some shady business practices lead Bogner to a discovery that could actually lead to a take-over of the Globe itself.

More fun and games for Bognor in this story and lots of recognisable faces amongst the cast too including the likes of David Calder as an over the top Police Inspector, Rock Follies star Charlotte Cornwell as a journalist who has the hots for Bognor, the always Peter Jeffrey as your archetypal old soak journo and Benjamin Whitrow as the editor of the column. There are also guest appearances from a pre Dempsey and Makepeace Glynis Barber and 1970’s starlet Seretta Wilson.

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.
