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.

Hazell: Hazell and Hyde (ITV 7 June 1979, with Maev Alexander)




Hazell Nicholas Ball

In Hazell and Hyde James is asked to find a young woman, Claudine, who has apparently joined a group of squatters. When Hazell tracks down the group he is told that they had forced her to move on – her drug use was causing big problems. When a body turns up it looks like Hazell has found her, and an identification by her father seems to confirm it. However Choc Minty quickly arrives on the scene and makes it plain the dead girl is not the Claudine he is looking for but a woman who had apparently crossed Claudine in some way.

Claudine actually turns out to be something of a psychopath and having killed once has decided to make her next target our intrepid hero.

Meanwhile Jim has finally found himself somewhere else to live, his old flat having been reclaimed by the fellow he lent him the use of it.

It’s definitely something of a walk on the seedier side of life for Hazell. Maev Alexander, wjho plays the disturbed Claudine, is best known for her role as Christine Russell in the first couple of seasons of Sutherland’s Law.

Hazell: Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost (ITV 31 May 1979, with Meg Davies)




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.
