The Hanged Man: Tower of Destruction (ITV 1975, Jenny Hanley, Julian Glover)

Published

on

In Tower of Destruction Burnett has teamed up with Alan Crowe to get to the heart of who wants him dead and why, the trail leads them to George Pilgrim who is behind the construction of a new power station and also a meeting up with a former war colleague of Lew’s – helicopter pilot Joe Denver who seems to have more than a few reasons to not want to meet up with Burnett once again.

A few more facts are revealed in this second episode, not least the fact that the death of Burnett’s wife in a plane crash was part of the conspiracy against Burnett, he should have been flying up to Scotland too but had to cancel at the last minute. More good quality guest stars in the shape of Julian Glover and the lovely Jenny Hanley as well as William Lucas from The Adventures of Black Beauty.

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.
