The Hanged Man: Chariot of Earth (ITV 1975, Gareth Hunt, Jack Watson)

Published

on

In Chariot of Earth Burnett and Alan head north to Scotland convinced that the secret to why someone is out to kill Burnett lies there with former business partner Charlie Galbraith. Lew had been supporting Galbraith when he got into trouble financially but withdraw his support not long before the first death threat which lead to the death of Burnett’s wife. Meanwhile Douglas Mackinnon, Galbriath’s game keeper seems to have one or two things to hide.

A roister doistering fight at the end between Burnett and Mackinnon is the highlight of the episode and it is also the catalyst for Burnett learning just a little bit more about what is going on. Somebody had been paying Mackinnon a large some of money each month but no one knows just why.

This is the episode that features the first appearance of petty crook Turtle and his oppo Eddie who, four years later, would go on to appear in their own spin off series called Turtle’s Progress which saw the pair accidentally becoming the owners of a hoarde of stolen safe deposit boxes which their owners want back – at any cost. John F. Landry starred in the series but Gareth Hunt who played Eddie here had moved on a bit having starred in The New Avengers by that stage and the role was taken by Michael Attwell.

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.
