Hunter’s Walk: Disturbance (ITV 4 June 1973, Doug Fisher)

Published

on

In Disturbance, the first episode of Hunter’s Walk, Smith and Ridgeway are forced into action when Dennis Kenwright, disturbed over his wife’s apparent unfaithfulness, take a pot shot with a shotgun at Ted Peters, the man who has been seeing his wife. The ensuing manhunt and siege that develops puts the lives of Smith and Ridgeway in danger.

Disturbance serves as a good opener. although Vanishing Trick broadcast later in the first season was initially going to open the series it doesn’t really matter as there is no introduction to the characters they are just very much going about their jobs.

Doug Fisher probably best known as Larry from Man About The House gets the meatiest role here as the gone rogue cuckold Kenwright. The much older and always dependable John Ringham is his rival when it comes to his wife’s affections. She wants to divorce Kenwright but Ringham’s character, Ted Peters, is already married.

This is one of six episodes from the first season still in existence, and only exists in black and white.

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.
