Hadleigh: Ring of Fire (ITV 22 Jan 1971, with Hannah Gordon)

Published

on

In Ring of Fire James is playing a dangerous game. He has become rather enamoured with the wife of old friend Brian Alwyn. Brian is a well known racing driver and is getting over a leg injury. Hadleigh, who hasn’t seen Alwyn for four years, pays him a visit when he hears about his accident. Alwyn and his wife Sarah have been married for three years but are going through a rough patch to say the least.

Hadleigh and Sarah meet up in Germany whilst both over there on business but despite James’ best efforts nothing happens. Back home Brian persuades James that a few days holiday for himself and Sarah and staying with James at his Yorkshire estate would be the perfect tonic.

Quite an intense episode, James and Sarah (played by the gorgeous Hannah Gordon) are clearly more than a little keen but both are unwilling to take that ultimate step. Brian becomes convinced they are having an affair but Hadleigh is able to convince him otherwise.

In a twist when Brian returns to racing some months later he is killed when his car develops a mechanical fault and he crashes. James is quick to offer comfort but Sarah tells him she is leaving for Los Angeles.

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.
