Hadleigh: Mishaps (ITV 10 Aug 1973, with Frederick Jaeger)

Published

on

In Mishaps an old friend of Hadleigh’s, Leo Ingram, is back in the country after spending the last few years in Europe. He intends to set up a country retreat as part of a new business venture that will see European companies use it for team building excercises. He wants to get James’ opinion on the property but when their land rover breaks down the pair end up stranded.

Leo would like James to partner with him on the project but given the run down state of the property and how much it would cost,

Meanwhile Jennifer’s old friend Lois arrives at Melford having left boyfriend Tony. As the episode starts it’s clear that Jennifer is pretty depressed, still struggling to find her place at Melford but the arrival of Lois does give Jennifer the chance to talk about what’s on her mind – principally the fact that she thinks she is pregnant and doesn’t want to be. She hasn’t told James yet but he has an inkling. It turns out to be a false alarm in any case.

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.
