In Hazell Goes to the Dogs Hazell has been hired by the wife of bookmaker Wally Wiggins because she thinks he is having an affair. The case takes an interesting turn when Hazell sees Wiggins’ car get stolen (complete with the takings from his day at the dog track) and then discovers that Wally’s wife has left him.

Hazell Goes to the Dogs

Dave King is Wally Wiggins

As Hazell investigates he learns Wally is having an affair with young Greek neighbour Melina. Hazell then becomes convinced that Wally is up to no good, in fact he becomes convinced that Wiggins’ has murdered his wife. Choc Minty thinks it’s all just speculation without any real facts to back up the idea. For once it turns out Hazell is way off the mark.

Another strong guest appearance from 60’s comic turned serious actor Dave King, a young Marina Sirtis also appears as Wally’s potential mistress. Kenneth Colley also has a bit part as the porter in the apartment complex where Wiggins and Melina both live.

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.
