Harry O: Mister Five and Dime (ABC 8 Jan 1976, with J. Pat O’Malley)

Published

on

In Mister Five and Dime Harry teams up with Lester Hodges when Gayle, a friend of the young criminologist, is arrested for trying to pass counterfeit money. She had been given the money by her Grandfather. Bill Hoxley When Lester and Gayle go to see him they discover he has been kidnapped and that he has been running a counterfeiting operation in his attic.

The kidnappers want Hoxley to up his game and manufacture a massive amount of money. He refuses. Meanwhile Treasury Agent John Lipton is posing as a big player in the game in a bid to get the ringleaders – unbeknownst to Harry who ends up trying to line up a deal with him.

J. Pat O’Malley is great fun as elderly Bill Hoxton, he has been counterfeiting seemingly perfect notes for years but only ever enough to augment his meagre pension.

Like most of the Lester episodes it’s quite fun, with the Treasury Department and the DEA all working undercover and tripping over themselves. Of course Harry being Harry he manages to get the better of all of them.

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.
