Justice: A Nice Straight Forward Treason (ITV 3 Dec 1971, with Paul Eddington)

Published

on


In A Nice Straightforward Treason young widow Sandra Graham and her lodger Eric Brigshaw (although it’s quickly made plain he is more than just a lodger) are devoted ham radio users but when defecting Russian Strelich names them as part of a spy ring. Sandra is claiming complete innocence. Ian Moody just happens to be her doctor and persuades Harriet to take on her case.

Moody is still pursuing Harriet and she seems somewhat happier about the pursuit in this episode. It’s clear they are seeing quite a lot of each other.

Another James Mitchell episode touching on espionage, he was well versed in the subject having created Callan.

There was an excellent four page feature on Lockwood in the 27 Nov TV Times coinciding with this issue, funnily enough Margaret’s real life home was quite similar to the one Harriet called home in the first season. Much of the article focused on Lockwood still trying to leave the Gainsborough and Wicked Lady days behind.

This episode tapped into the notorious case of the Portland Spy Ring of the late fifties and early sixties when a group of Russian spies were found to be operating out of a typical suburban house.
