The Hanged Man: The Bridge Maker (ITV 1975, Ray Smith, James Maxwell)

Published

on

In The Bridge Maker a trip to the Eastern Block turns into a disaster for Burnett, he is arrested and subjected to interrogation and accused of corruption on a grand scale, Alan will need to call on a very special mercenary friend to get Lewis out of this one.

A very Cold War episode this one, things not turning out overly well for Burnett until Crowe comes to the rescue. Ray Smith, that bluff northern character actor turns in a great Russian role here as the scheming Milcjek. We are also finding out a bit more about the sinister John Quentin who in each of the episodes has been trailing Burnett and Crowe on behalf of some unseen adversary. He’s a mercenary who seems to want Crowe out of the way more than Burnett at times.

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.
