Man At The Top: Fixtures And Fittings (ITV 22 Feb 1971)

Published

on

It looks like Joe has fallen on his feet once again in Fixtures And Fittings when he saves a very wealthy industrialist from losing a fortune in a dodgy deal, Harvey Clayton offers Joe a job setting up the new London end of his business. He is seeing Jonni on a fairly regular basis but she too quickly becomes tired of his business obsessed attitude. When Susan puts the house up for sale he realises just what he is missing out on and it seems a reconcilliation is on the cards.

A fitting finale to a fabulous first season of Man At The Top, lots of good moments between Joe and Harvey Clayton and a great scene where Jonni realises that no matter what Joe is never going to change when it comes to business first, she walks out on him suitcase in hand and he is momentarily put out but then goes back to his work. The only possibly false note is struck with the ease that Susan accepts Joe back but then again they have a lot of history together and she has always known what kind of man he is.

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.
