Hazell: Hazell Settles The Accounts (ITV 6 Feb 1978, with Pamela Stephenson)

Published

on

In Hazell Settles The Accounts Hazell is working undercover as a barman in a Soho club. One of the employees is stealing from tough owner Jennings and he wants to know who. Meanwhile Hazell’s trouble really starts when he is asked to take home drunken accountant Dobson. Hazell drops him off but Dobson then goes missing. Hazell then finds himself harassed by a pair of thugs, Graves and Creasey, who desperately want to know where Dobson is…

Guest star Pamela Stephenson was actually married to Nicholas Ball at the time, she was just about to hit the big time with a main role in Not The Nine O’Clock News. She met Billy Connolly on this series and would later end up married to him.

The whole guest cast is fabulous actually with John Rhys Davies and a playing to type Alan Lake as a pair of heavies. 70’s heavy Patrick Durkin plays club owner Jennings, with Harry Landis as his bar manager whilst Freddie Jones is the less than sober Dobson.

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.
