The Hanged Man: Grail and Platter (ITV 22 Mar 1975, Frederick Jaeger)

Published

on

In Grail and Platter Lew is still recovering from his interrogation at the hands of the Russians but finds that trouble is still right on his doorstep. Going in search of a crook/killer called Hans Dieter puts him out in the open like never before and very quickly a group of crooked businessmen from Detroit are on his tail and planning to kill him once and for all.

The key to the episode is an intelligence report that Burnett is desperate to get his hands on, it should give him some vital information on the money trail that seems to be at the heart of his death threats. Also another strong guest roster not least with the always excellent Frederick jaeger as the hitman Dieter.

classic quote
Burnett: “Use it well, perhaps it will turn clean, I sold six people to get it… Mind you I’ve sold people before, eggs in a crate, some of them get smashed. But that’s always later when I’m somewhere else. It’s never been anything to do with me.”

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.
