The Main Chance: Where Did I Leave My Shining Armour (ITV 19 July 1972)

Published

on

In Where Did I Leave My Shining Armour a new lawyer has joined the Leeds practice. Edward Ransome is a go ahead solicitor in the David Main mould leading, naturally enough, to a certain amount of friction between himself and Main. David, asked by Margaret, has allowed himself to get involved in Ransome’s latest case involving a nasty career criminal accused of murder.

Something of a rutting stags episode for David in this episode what with new blood in the Leeds office and the chance for Henry to become a court recorder (a kind of circuit judge), something considered quite an honour for a mere solicitor. In fact in this storyline nicely reflects a change in the law in 1971 that allowed solicitors to become judges.

It’s a typically strong episode though, David Main is such cool, fabulous character.

A good role for the excellent Stuart Wilson who is probably best known for his role in the superb The Old Men At The Zoo and there is also an appearance from Richard Easton who was just about to go on to a major role in as one of the key characters on The Brothers (which Margaret Ashcroft also became a regular on too.)

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.
