New Scotland Yard: Ask No Questions (ITV 1 July 1972)

Published

Ask No QuestionsIn Ask No Questions a young woman is murdered Kingdom and Ward’s investigation take them into a murky world of drop-outs and drug users.

A gruesome start with the body of a young found murdered and left on a rubbish dump. This is an unusually traditional murder mystery episode of New Scotland Yard, so far in this first season Kingdom’s cases have been a real mixed bag.

Like so many TV series of the era that dipped their toes into hippydom it’s a bit (lot) cliched especially the dialogue – “what’s the scene here, it’s really paranoid” etc but for all that it is a strong episode and there is a nice pay off at the end when the full story comes out.

Interesting guest stars include a long haired David Horovitch, no not a hippy but usually seen with little hair; Liz Gebhardt best known as Maureen in Police Sir and excellent character actors Robert Gillespie and Tenniel Evans.

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.
