The Main Chance: Rule of Law (ITV 2 May 1975, Edward Judd)

Published

on

In Rule of Law David has been struck off the Roll of Solicitors but has immediately lodged an appeal, this basically means the striking off has been suspended until the appeal has been heard. David is still convinced he has a good case but Henry knows deep down he has little chance.

Meanwhile the practice is defending career criminal Roy Wilson Gibbard who is pleading not guilty in a case of robbery. David clearly is not impressed with Gibbard and persuades him to not defend himself in light of his criminal record and the fact that his criminal history should not have been mentioned in court. Because of this he is able to appeal and wins – his case is dismissed and he goes free. It leaves a sour taste in the mouths of David though.

Rule of Law

Sharon Mughan as new secretary Inge makes a strong impact on David Main.

More strong guest roles for the likes of Edward Judd, Peter Jeffrey and Leslie Schofield in this episode too. The gorgeous Sharon Maughan (billed as Mughan throughout this series) makes her first appearance as au pair turned secretary Inge Belbin. She very quickly makes herself indispensable to Main.

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.
