In Powerbase Christopher, along with Peter Richards, is going quietly about his plans. Gathering about him a powerbase of loyal supporters. Meanwhile his personal life is in disarray. Having recently lost their son Andrew, his wife Alice thinks he is using his death to gain sympathy. She tells him she wants to live apart from him for awhile.

His agent Ron Hibbert is working hard for Chris but doesn’t like him and Chris knows it. Councillor Bernard King knows how good Hibbert is and tells Chris he needs to keep him.

As much time is devoted to Ron’s life, he is solid working class and married to Dorothy. He is a teacher and is also heavily involved in trying to help the disenfranchised youth of the area.

The Nearly Man Powerbase

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.
