Harry O: Mayday (ABC 23 Oct 1975, with Maggie Blye)

Published

on

In Mayday an old Korean War colleague of Harry’s, Ward Nevin, is working as a pilot for Senator John Elton. On a routine flight his plane develops a fault and crashes, Nevins is killed and Elton is badly injured. Harry attends the funeral for Nevin and meets his wife Ellen, taking her home to avoid the press crush, they discover that her home has been ransacked.

Everybody is sure the burglary is coincidence but Harry investigates anyway and quickly learns that Senator Elton is not particularly well liked within the union industry and the crash might have been deliberate.

It’s a big plot that is handled excellently within the relatively small scale world of Harry.

There is a cute subplot involving the gorgeous Gina, she has a couple of days free and wants to spend them with Harry but everytime she calls upon him he is either in the middle of something or on his way somewhere.

Harry O Mayday

Harry manages to find a reason to call on Lt Trench every 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.
