Hazell: Hazell Works for Nothing (ITV 13 Mar 1978, with Anne Kristen)

Published

on

In Hazell Works for Nothing our intrepid tec is asked by his mother (who is ill in hospital) to help a woman she knows whose son is on the run after taking part in a robbery in which a nightwatchman was shot. Much to Hazell’s dismay his mother has arranged that he works for no payment.

The man, Bernie, is high on the police wanted list and it seems like every “rozzer” in London is on the lookout for him, making tracking him down even harder. Hazell discovers that the married Franks was also heavily involved with “lady of the night” Sadie.

An episode that definitely veers on to the seedy side of the street. Hazel sleeps with a prostitute who turns out to be Bernie’s girl and then discovers he might have got a sexually transmitted disease.

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.
