UK / BBC One – Big Boy – Red Rooster / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast 19 December 1996

Writer: Jimmy Nail / Director: Roger Bamford

Series: Crocodile Shoes / Season 2 Episode 6

In Boom, the boss of Paradigm records Pilsbury has been sacked and an investigation under way, it looks like the company owes Jed an awful lot of money, meanwhile journalist Quimby now believes Jed’s story and is digging into the Bowles affair and D.I. MacCluskey begins to realise he has gotten in too deep.

Alan Clarke is keen for Jed to get a record out and Jed is keen to put things on a more permanent setting with Wendy and proposes marriage but Wendy is still struggling to get over the Jed and Lucy thing. Jed realises that an appearance on live TV offers up the perfect chance to set things straight once and for all.

The big finale of the second season sees an all out chase develop as Bowles realises he is running out of time and options. We won’t reveal too much here but things don’t necessarily end the way you think they are going to end especially when Bowles’ hitman Connors decides to kidnap Wendy.

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.
