Episodes Hadleigh: Divorce (ITV 2 Apr 1976, with Shane Rimmer) Published 1 year ago on October 19, 2017 In Divorce James is giving serious consideration to the deal set up by Gregory Baker. He is playing host to the Sheik who is behind the offer to buy Melford. The Sheik, Nadir, seems to be saying all the right things but it very quickly becomes obvious that his plans for Melford would a huge amount of change. Meanwhile an American in a helicopter lands on Hadleigh’s front lawn, he is a middle-aged, unfit looking scruffy businessman, Howard Pollack, who tells James that Jennifer wants him to start divorce proceedings. Hadleigh thinks Pollack is here to tell him about Baker but it turns out that he himself is the man having the affair with Jennifer. Worse than that she is pregnant with his child. Hadleigh feels he has no option but to push the divorce through as quick as possible. Pollock puts a spanner in the works by refusing to sign a confession of adultery but does agree to appear in court in person. Hadleigh’s lawyer Tim Balfour thinks Pollack is up to something. He is of course, he reveals in court that not only is Jennifer pregnant but that her affair with Baker began several months before she actually separated from James. Shock of shocks in the best episode of the season so far. Pollack, played by the fabulous Shane Rimmer, may initially seem like an unlikely choice for Jennifer but she obviously likes older men and he is the kind of character that would take no nonsense from her. Hadleigh’s guest Sheik Nadir (played by Marc Zuber) has designs on Melford Park but once James learns that his plans include turning Melford into a Safari Park there is no chance he will sell. production details UK / ITV – Yorkshire / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Friday 2 April 1976 at 9.00pm Writer: Ian Curtis / Production Design: Mary Rae / Director: Christopher Hodson Series: Hadleigh Season 4 Episode 5 cast Gerald Harper as James Hadleigh Peter Dennis as Sutton Ambrosine Phillpotts as Lady Helen David Horovitch as Tim Balfour Shane Rimmer as Howard Pollack Marc Zuber as Sheik Nadir Geoffrey Lumsden as Judge Dorina Rae as First Woman Helen Barnaby as Clerk of Court Noel Cameron as Counsel Lesley Mason as Second woman Christopher HodsonDavid HorovitchHadleighIan CurtisITVMarc ZuberShane RimmerTVYorkshire Advertisement advertisement and this just in Features24 hours ago Classic Movie Characters: Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator Before The Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger was viewed as little more than a B-list barbarian.
