Justice: Covenant for Quiet Enjoyment (ITV 27 Apr 1973, with Mark Colleano)



In Convenant for Quiet Enjoyment Bill’s son is out on bail pending the appeal. Police Sergeant Wilson is giving evidence supporting Dave’s claim that he was not involved in the actual beating up of Major Hector Stannard.

Meanwhile Harriet has also teamed up with Ian and probation officer Eileen Rutherford to help a young married couple, Rachel and Cyril Butler, who have been thrown out of their flat by their landlord Manuel Novas. Given that he has been harassing them for sometime and is upset that Rachel is pregnant Harriet believes they have a major case for a Covenant of quiet enjoyment which lets them get their flat back.

It seems that Harriet and Ian’s relationship has moved to a merely professional level, the missing of the Lisbon flight another kick in the stomach to Ian. The new Law Centre has been open for a couple of weeks now and Harriet is quite involved but so is probation officer Eileen Rutherford who seems to be getting on quite well with Ian. Indeed, before the end of the episode she has told Harriet that she is in love with him.

Justice Convenant For Quiet Enjoyment

Harriet has a strained meeting with Eileen Rutherford (Angela Thorne). Eileen makes it clear to Harriet that she is in love with Ian.

The dynamic between Harriet, Ian and Sir John has been excellent over the last few episodes. It’s clear that Harriet and Ian do love each other but Ian can’t take any more of her putting work first and Harriet can do nothing else. Sir John is circling around the two like a vulture. He would gladly marry Harriet, not because he is in love with her (Sir John is in love with nobody but himself) but he completely admires her and thinks she would be a superb life partner and companion.
