Stevens V Porton Construction

A case in which the wife of a man seriously injured in an accident at work sues the company, Porton Construction, for damages. The company claims that the man was drunk and wasn’t wearing a safety belt, witness Tom Morgan, a fellow worker, insists that the shed containing the safety belts and that the company are definitely to blame. George Walker, the site forman, when questioned also admits that the shed was kept locked.

Quite a strong story, at first your sympathies lie with the company as the evidence mounts but before too long it is not looking so clear cut.

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.
