Hadleigh: Incident (ITV 14 May 1976, with James Grout)

Published

on

In Incident Joanna thinks she has found the perfect job for Jenny. David Lanyon, the father of an old school friend of hers, is in the oil industry and involved in a think tank. He wants James to replace him.

Joanna has spent the day with Valerie Lanyon and her father. That evening Lanyon gives Joanna a lift to the train station and on the way hits something with his car – Lanyon is adamant it was a pheasant – Joanna is not convinced.

When Valerie and David arrive at Melford for the weekend Joanna discovers that a boy from Lanyon’s village was killed in a hit and run incident.

Joanna is distraught and almost unable to face David. James, whilst talking to David about the job offer, is able to get to the heart of the matter with him – he was the driver who hit the child. But on the way back from dropping off Joanna at the station!

An excellent episode, one that revolves around Joanna. The question of whether she had a premonition about Lanyon hitting the child is left very much up in the air.

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.
