Justice: Persona Non Grata (ITV 12 Jul 1974, with Ed Devereaux)

Published

on

In Persona Non Grata Harriet has a strange client to deal with; Millionaire Frank Ronce has accused his daughter (whom he does not get on with) of stealing a valuable painting from his estate. Ronce seems rather keen on making sure Harriet works for him, he even has a dossier and photographs on not just her but Moody and Eliot too. At one stage you start to think there may be some sinister aspect to this but that doesn’t pan out – he just likes to be fully prepared apparently.

Meanwhile James has a difficult case to deal with involving an old childhood friend. Jean has married Matthew Patel whose four year visa has expired. Matthew has been training to be a teacher and had hoped that he would be allowed to stay in the country.

Justice Persona Non Grata Ed Devereaux

Ed Devereaux plays millionaire Frank Ronce.

Another episode contrasting two very different cases, James’ case is actually the more interesting one. There are quite a few interesting guest appearances too, Ed Deveraux, who plays Frank Ronce, was best known for his starring role in Australian series Skippy, Andrew Burt, who has a small role here as a witness, had been appearing in Emmerdale Farm but had recently left the show. Angus Lennie, who also plays a witness, was another well known soap face playing Shughie McFee in Crossroads.

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.
