The Crezz: Gone to the Dogs (ITV 28 Oct 1976, Frank Mills)

Published

on

It’s the other side of the tracks that is the focus of Gone to the Dogs as the working class George Smith whose house also backs onto the Carlisle Crescent gardens buys a greyhound. Not only does his wife resent him buying the greyhound rather than the new washing machine they really need but the residents of The Crezz are not impressed about him using the gardens to train “Harvey Street Boy” either. It also turns out that Harvey Street Boy might need to be remained Harvey Street Girl.

A nicely comedic episode and one giving Frank Mills a chance to shine as Greyhound loving George. We also get more of a sense of the layout of the Crezz with the less salubrious Harvey Street also having direct access to the gardens too.

By this stage in it’s original run The Crezz was under performing ratings wise and it was now being broadcast in the distinctly non prime-time slot of Thursdays at 10.30pm.

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.
