Published

on

In third season finale Touch and Go Jennifer is in London but nobody seems to know where she is, much to James clear displeaure. He still doesn’t know whether she has got the job in America or not. Jennifer calls Lois and tells her she needs time to think, Tony though thinks James needs to know where she is. Hadleigh tracks her down to the flat she is staying in. She has got the job and has 24 hours to give them her decision.

It’s very clear that Jennifer blames Melford itself for all their problems. James disagrees. Their discussions are intense, you can tell because James actually loosens his tie! Eventually they both realise their love is bigger than all other issues.

Meanwhile Sutton’s mercy mission to Cornwall to save the Dr Drummond’s ends in tragedy. On his return he reveals to James that she has killed herself after discovering that the Doctor who treated her for mental problems had died. Sutton has been having a none too discreet affair with Drummond’s wife. Helen thinks James should let Sutton go, having brought no small amount of gossip Melford’s way, many of the people in the village agree with her. Both James and Jennifer are adamant will be staying.

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.
