Gazette: Between The Lines (ITV 6 Sep 1968, with Isla Blair)

Published

on

In Between The Lines “Paddy” Fawcett is suing the paper for libel over a piece Susan wrote for the Woman’s page about his “friendship” with Gwen Neilsen. The article in question is seemingly innocuous but it seems the Fawcett’s have spotted a chance to make some money out of Hadleigh and hopefully get control of the Gazette.

Gazette Between The Lines

Diana Chappell as Gwen and Donald Sumpter as Paddy.

There is no chance that Gwen and Paddy are involved in a relationship as they are actually half brother and sister. Susan has been deliberately played by Paddy’s friend Bettie Strickland.

Luckily a bit of digging by Walters manages to save the day. At one stage Hadleigh is convinced he is going to lose everything but is determined to hold on to the Gazette at any cost.

A young Isla Blair plays Bettie Strickland and an equally young Donald Sumpter is the scheming Paddy.

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.
