Man At The Top: The Name But Not The Game (ITV 1 Feb 1971)

Published

on

In The Name But Not The Game it looks like someone is out to ruin Joe good and proper, he is named as co-respondent in a divorce case and for once when Joe says he has never met the woman in question he is telling the truth, he stands to have to pay 14,000 pounds in damages, a sum big enough to send him bankrupt but he is convinced there is something shady going on.

Another good strong episode, in fact there isn’t a duff episode in the whole first season. It soon becomes clear just what is going on in the shape of the involvement of Joe’s hated rivel Marlcliffe who intends to pull off a major contract that Lampton and Soames are also bidding for. Some interesting dynamics going on too, Joe just can’t escape from the shadow of his father in law Abe who comes down from “up north” to use his contacts to find out what is going on.

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.
