Hadleigh: Family Feeling (ITV 31 Aug 1973 with Gerald James)

Published

on

In Family Feeling Charlie, Jennifer’s father, is spending a few days at Melford. However when a business call sends Charlie hurrying home Jennifer decides to go with him, sure that there is something going on.

Hadleigh then get a strange phone call that leads him to pay a visit to the site of the first business Charlie bought – a marine salvage yard. It turns out the site manager (who was in the Navy with Charlie) was the one who contacted James. The man, Walter Unwin, is convinced that Charlie is doing something illegal. James discovers that a stack of supposed machine tools, earmarked for Germany are in fact going to Glasgow to a company that doesn’t exist. Unwin gives Hadleigh the keys to the yard and under cover of darkness he takes a look inside one of the crates and discovers that it contains guns and ammunition.

When Hadleigh tells Jennifer what is going on the pair confront Charlie but he loses his temper and insists they keep out of it. Then they receive a call from the CID. It turns out Charlie is working with the police to catch the big fish.

An excellent script from actor/writer Leslie Sands that provides some good background on Jennifer’s father and does a good job of turning the story on it’s head in it’s last third.

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.
