Follyfoot: The Distant Voice (ITV 24 Jun 1974, with Desmond Llewellyn)

Published

on

In The Distance Voice Dora is finding that being Mistress of Follyfoot is much harder than simply looking after the horses. Especially when there are bills to juggle and feed to order.

She also has a run in with Steve over a horse that belonging to a Milkman who has recently died. His widow tells Dora that the horse, Tansy, was guaranteed a place at the farm by the Colonel but Steve insists they don’t have enough room. Tansy may also be sick and is refusing to eat.

Steve is right, the horse has the contagious disease Strangles and is sure to die – Dora still insists on bringing the horse back to Follyfoot. Horse trainer Carlton, who has been keeping a pair of his horses at the farm, is none too impressed.

The Colonel, despite still being very ill, manages to pay a visit to Follyfoot to dispense a few words of wisdom to Dora.

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.
