Gazette: Missing (ITV 30 Aug 1968, with John Nettleton)

Published

on

In Missing a young schoolgirl goes missing, sparking a major hunt. Susan gets the chance to cover the story as a stringer for the Fleet Street based Daily Standard; Bill has his nose put out of joint because he normally handles the Standard cases but was out on another story at the time this one came in.

With another young girl having been found murdered in the area two months earlier things are not looking too good for the missing girl. The Daily Standard decide to go all out on the story and send up one of their top men to cover it. Bill manages to wangle himself and Susan onto the story as his runabouts – Susan is less than impressed with the way The Standard does business.

It’s a good episode contrasting the ways of the rural weekly with that of the no nonsense London daily. The plot is excellent too, it turns out that Turner has arranged the kidnap of his own daughter in a bid to bring his estranged wife back home. Susan is disgusted that Todd, the Standard man won’t let the police know the girl is safe until the story has gone to press.

Hadleigh does not appear in this episode and Walters is only in the opening scene.

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.
