The Hanged Man: Knave of Coins (ITV 1 Mar 1975, William Russell)

Published

on

In Knave of Coins Alan and Lew take a trip to Switzerland to tangle with a highly crooked financier who, believing that Lew is dead, has embezzled a huge chunk of money from him which he plans to siphon into a revolution in Arabia. When it proves hard to bring the financier to book Crowe calls on some of his mercenary “friends” to help.

Lew Burnett is a classic character, hard as nails and doesn’t care whether he is dealing with a Swiss business bigwig who has ripped him off or threatening a pair of police detectives. Also for someone who is supposed to be undercover as a dead man he isn’t shy about letting people know he is still alive.

There is an excellent guest appearance from William “Dr Who” Russell looking very different with his comb over and glasses.

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.
