Harry O: APB Harry Orwell (ABC 6 Nov 1975, with Lesley Ann Warren)

Published

on

In APB Harry Orwell somebody is posing as Harry and frames him for murder. With all evidence pointing to him Trench has no option but to arrest him. Harry has an alibi for the time of the murder but the potential client he was seeing, Gail Stennis, is unwilling to come forward.

Trench is convinced of Harry’s innocence and continues the investigation on his own time.

When Harry gets the opportunity to escape from jail (he shares a cell with a drunkard and swaps name tags with him) he does so and sets out to clear his name. Trench and Harry almost discover the identity of the killer at the same time – a man called Bardach, who Harry put away years before.

Lesley Ann Warren plays Diana

Despite being something of a loner, all of Harry’s friends do rally round even Spencer provides him with a car once he has escaped from Prison.

The sad thing is, as Harry says to Trench at the close of the episode, for all the years of Bardach’s festering hatred of Orwell, Harry can’t even remember him. Just another bad guy he put away when he was on the force.

Farrah Fawcett-Majors makes another of her occasional appearances as Harry’s occasional girlfriend Sue. In fact this marks her most substantial appearance yet. Although better known as Lesley Ann Warren, Lesley was billed as Lesley Warren.

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.
