Fraud Squad: The Harland Affair (ITV 17 Oct 1970, with Andrew Keir)

Published

on

In The Harland Affair businessman Jim Harland has had a nervous breakdown and is recovering in a nursing home. Whilst he is away Fraud Squad are investigating various irregularities in the running of his business. A prefab construction company.

Harland’s is trying to organise a merger with a Dutch company and without it Harland’s will go under. Hicks has discovered that Harland has made the company look three quarters of a million pounds richer than it is.

A definitely eccentric episode and for most of it Gamble seems to have no idea what is going on. A good performance from Andrew Keir as the pressured Harland though.

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.
