Harry O: The Madonna Legacy (ABC 11 Dec 1975, with Christine Belford)

Published

on

In The Madonna Legacy a former captain of detectives is found dead on the beach, believed to have committed suicide. Harry is sure that Frank McDonald would never have killed himself. His death seems to have links with wealthy businessman Walter Nesbitt.

As Harry investigates he learns that Frank had investigated the murder of Walter Nesbitt’s secretary some eight years before. Meanwhile it seems someone is systematically trying to get rid of the Nesbitt’s themselves. The case gets murkier when Harry learns that the man who was imprisoned for the murder of Nesbitt’s secretary has been released on parole. Is it just a simple case of revenge?

The real centre of the whole story is the 8 year old murder case and in best Agatha Christie style all the suspects gather as various flashbacks reveal who the real killer was.

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.
