Moody And Pegg: He – The Lover (ITV 12 Aug 1974)

Published

on

In He – The Lover Daphne is more than a little put out when her Aunt Ethel arrives for a six week stay luckily Roland manages to smooth over the situation leaving Aunt Ethel no option but to go home the next day. Meanwhile Roland is planning to spend the evening at home with estate agent Monica Bakewell, Daphne is happy to stay out of the way but a series of mishaps, visitors and Jarvis the hamster making a bid for freedom but a whole new spin on the evening.

Something of a low key episode to begin with that moves into classic farce territory for the final section when Moody just cannot get a minute alone with Mrs Bakewell. Aunt Ethel turns out to be a right racist too despite saying that she has no racial prejudices and initially faints when she thinks Mr Moody is a person of colour (she hasn’t seen him but they have a lot of foreign food in their cupboards). There is also some background on Daphne’s upbringing revealed in this episode too – she went to live with Aunt Ethel at the age of 10 following the death of her mother.

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.
