Fraud Squad: Anybody Here Seen Kelly (ITV 12 Aug 1969, with Liam Redmond)

Published

on

In the tense season one finale Anybody Here Seen Kelly Gamble is in the Irish Republic looking into a case of possible fraud involving a very valuable painting. The man involved just happens to be a Captain MacLennan, the leader of the dangerous and very Hitler-esque Irish Patriot Movement. The painting is believed to have been taken from the country home of MacLennan’s father just before his home was destroyed in a fire.

The man caught in the middle is Ignatius Kelly the art dealer who led Gamble to the painting. He knows MacLennan and his “greenshirts” are after him so goes underground. Gamble needs to find him before MacLennan’s men do.

Of course it’s all mainly a chance for Liam Redmond to take centre stage as the eponymous Kelly.

The MacLennan – Green Shirts thing is quite odd, they are clearly modelled along the lines of Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts, still it does give Patrick O’Connell to get a bit of fisticuff action in when he takes on some of the Green Shirts.

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.
