on

In Episode 8 Gervase and Julia have been taken prisoner by resistance fighters from The Wastelands. The leader, Colley, wants to kill Gervase to settle the account for the death of his number 2, Fen. Luckily Arthur is on the scene to stop that happening. Arthur quickly discovers that Gervase has been brainwashed by

Meanwhile Brigadier Clarke is trying to discover what Mordrin really knows about Gervase and in a twist we learn that the Brigadier is Julia’s father. In a further twist Arthur reveals to Julia that Mordrin is his son and that he has evil in his heart. In real life Patrick Troughton was only 9 years older than John Woodvine and both look roughly around the same age.

Arthur tells Brigadier Clarke that he wants to arrange a meeting with Mordrin on neutral believing it is the only way that he can help Gervase. Mordrin is keen for the meeting thinking it will give him the chance to get rid of Arthur once and for all. Of course with Mordrin out of the way, Hugo thinks it will give him the chance to take over.

There is a definite whiff of the King Arthur legend growing around the series as it progresses, although the name is subtly different – Mordrin instead of Mordred. In Arthurian legend Mordred is a traitorous enemy of Arthurs and both were supposed to have been killed at The Battle of Camlann.

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.
