The Main Chance: Fit-Up (ITV 16 Aug 1972, Tessa Wyatt)

Published

on

In Fit-Up Walter persuades David to take on the case of Malcolm Evans who has been accused of robbery, his girlfriend Joey is convinced that Malcolm is being fitted-up by dodgy copper Lampeter.

Malcolm refuses to say where he was on the night in question but the real reason he can’t say where he was on the night is that he was actually part of a team planning another job.

David and Walter are the only two regular cast members to appear in this episode and there is a great showdown between the two in Clegg’s office when David makes it plain just why he hates taking on criminal cases.

The Main Chance Fit-Up

Tessa Wyatt as Joey Richards

Another strong script from Ray Jenkins, who was pretty busy during the 1970’s writing for shows such as The Brothers and The Sweeney as well as seven episodes of this series.

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.
