Man At The Top: I’ll Do The Dirty Work (ITV 18 Jan 1971)

Published

on

In I’ll Do The Dirty Work Joe is asked by Ian Somerset to pull off a tricky job for him and is willing to pay him two thousand pounds to do so, Joe doesn’t realise though that it could spell ruin for Joe’s business. However Joe being Joe he quickly learns what is going on (thanks in no small part to a fling with Somerset’s sister) and manages to turn the tables.

Quite a lot of interesting stuff going on in this episode, especially with the flirtation between Somerset and Susan, something which makes Joe a whole more attentive to her and for the first time in the season actually seems happy to be spending quality time with her. That doesn’t stop him seeing Somerset’s sister though. Joe is a very cool character under pressure and takes great delight in getting the better of Somerset.

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.
