Harry O: Group Terror (ABC 13 Nov 1975, with Joanna Pettet)

Published

on

In Group Terror when one of her patients is murdered psychiatrist Breda Beach is convinced that the killer is a member of one of her therapist groups, she persuades Harry to join the group to try and find out which one.

The best scenes are when Harry first visits the group and gives them all a piece of his mind. It’s all part of his investigation though, continually pushing the buttons of the group to see which one breaks.

Harry makes some strong inroads and discovers that the supposedly paralyse stuntman Bump is not actually paralysed at all. Trench takes him into custody but then Breda, enjoying a romantic evening with Harry at his home, is shot and badly injured. Further digging reveals that another member of the group Rusty, is not quite all he seems. As it happens it’s not Rusty or Bump who is the killer….

The gorgeous Joanna Pettet is chief guest star as psychiatrist Breda Beach. She is actually English but plays American here.

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.
