Man At The Top: How To Make A Fortune (ITV 17 Jul 1972)

Published

on

In How To Make A Fortune Susan is recuperating with an extended holiday overseas, meanwhile Joe is back in London and seeking solice in the arms of Doctor Helen Reid who would like to make their relationship more permanent but Joe is unwilling to be there for her. Charlie Armitage is also trying to persuade him to go into business with him with a possible land deal but Joe is still unsure of where his future lay.

With Susan conveniently out of the picture Joe finally persuades Dr Reid into bed, it’s a top episode too. There is a real sense of ennui about Joe as he grasps about for a new direction. What a fab cast this episode has too, Janet Key of course and the return of Colin Welland but also a nicely straight turn from Aimi Macdonald, Glyn Owen as a corrupt MP and Tom Chadbon as a wannabe employer for Joe.

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.
