Identity: Chelsea Girl (ITV1 12 July 2010 with Joanne Froggatt)

Published

on

UK / ITV1 Network – ITV Studios / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast Monday 12 July 2010 @ 9.00pm

Writer: Ed Whitmore / Director: Brendon Maher

Series: Identity / Season 1 Episode 2

“What have you come to do, stab me in the other leg?” In Chelsea Girl, episode two of this surprisingly tense crime drama series the Identity Unit find themselves looking into the death of Olivia Knighton when, soon after her body is discovered, somebody is found to be using her passport to enter the country. Bloom is quickly on to the idea that the identity thief is someone who is out to fulfill a major psychological need that possibly has its roots in her childhood. If they can find her father they might be able to find out just what she is up to.

This second episode makes it clear just how Bloom likes to work and just how much Anthony dislikes his methods. Clearly their is going to be fireworks between these two before the rest of the series is out. It’s also quite amusing how the public look at them somewhat strangely when they annouce they are with the Identity Unit, not an overly glamourous name!

Joanne Froggatt turns in a very strong perfromace here as Identy Thief Jane Calshaw, we know what she is doing right from the beginning but it seems like the Unit are always one step behind – until Bloom pieces things together of course. The opening Beach scenes which purport to be a beach somewhere in Sydney look more like Skegness shot through an orange filter!

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.
