Man At The Top: A Very Desirable Property (ITV 12 June 1972)

Published

on

In A Very Desirable Property Joe is once again out of work but he is back with Susan, he is scheming though to get back at MacLaines who let him go. Susan is looking for a house in London but Joe, as part of his plot against MacLaines, has bought the option on a mill factory in Leeds knowing that MacLaine needs it to expand his operations. In the process though he manages to do over old friend Charlie Armitage.

Joe is back to his scheming best in this second episode, working hard to ensure that he comes out on top once again, buying the option on the Mill is a great slice of one upmanship over MacLaine and by the episodes end manages to find himself working . Watch out for some slightly dodgy set design work when Joe is trying to rescue Charlie Armitage from a fire by kicking in a heavy door and the whole wall wobbles. There is a typically brilliant guest appearance from Colin Welland too as Armitage.

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.
