Hadleigh: Bow to the Lady (ITV 29 Jan 1971, with Jane Merrow)

Published

on

In Bow to the Lady Hadleigh is returning home from London on the train and shares a dining car table with Anne Hepton and her eight year old daughter Charlotte. He thinks nothing of it at the time but a later meeting with Anne will have a strong impact on him.

Meanwhile Aunt Helen is concerned that local brewery owner Dakin is about to retire and sell his shares. She also owns quite a few shares in the company and is concerned that if he sells out to Mercantile Brewers they will shut the brewery down.

Having had a disagreeable run in with Merton, the Mercantile’s front man, James decides to organise a syndicate to buy out Dakin’s himself. With £10,000 still to find he approaches his accountant Taylor who has worked with Hadleigh on several projects previously. However Taylor has just merged his company and his new associate just happens to be Anne Hepton who makes it plain they will not be lending James the ten thousand.

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.
