Published

on

In Exercise in Fatality Police Sgt Frank Brannan has discovered that his runaway teenage daughter Missy is pregnant and living with a black musican. During a confrontation with the man a pair of drug dealers knock out Brannan and shoot dead Missy’s boyfriend, framing Brannan in the process.

Missy, who is the only one who knows her father is innocent, goes on run. Frank Brannan, now accused of 1st degree murder needs Harry to find her and prove his innocence.

Missy is a serious drug addict, she finds brief sanctuary in a home for unwed mothers but the drug dealers are also after her.

Meanwhile an old girlfriend, Julia, asks Harry if she can stay with him for awhile. Her latest boyfriend has gotten involved in some quite serious criminal activity. Julia is killed by a hitman, Harry thinks the killer mistook her for Missy but the answer may not be as straight forward as that.

Surprisingly graphic when it comes to the dangers of drugs, this is a very strong episode.

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.
