Moon and Son: Crystal Clear It’s Murder (BBC-1 4 Jan 1992)

Published

on

In Crystal Clear It’s Murder, the opening episode of the series, Gladys Moon and her son Trevor are working in France. They ply the markets with a fortune telling business. At the same time that Trevor is helping an English civil engineer choose a present for his wife, Gladys is mugged by a French student. Later the engineer is found murdered.

Trevor is intriguing by the death and begins to quietly investigate, he discovers that the man, who was working on the construction of the Channel Tunnel, may have learnt that his former employers, Montgomery Russell Construction, may have been tampering with core samples for the Tunnel. It’s the kind of information that finds Trevor being threatened by a couple of heavies.

Despite the fact that Gladys is the fortune teller it is Trevor who seem to actually possess the real skills, he even uses dowsing to discover an important clue in the French countryside. It just happens to be the catalyst for unravelling the whole mystery.

It’s a good opening episode, showing the gypsy nature of Trevor and Glady’s lifestyle and playing up the fairly light hearted nature of the series.

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.
