New Scotland Yard: The Banker (ITV 24 June 1972)

Published

on

In The Banker Kingdom and Ward investigate the shooting of a prominent Mayfair couturier. Lack of an obvious motive seems to be leading the pair down a dead end until a chance discovery at his salon puts the duo on the right path.

Quite a staid episode, the title refers to the fact that the victim was a money launderer for a gang of crooks. The fabulous Jacqueline Pearce makes an appearance as a model who is not all she appears to be and joy of joys the usually mild mannered and often downright creepy Milton Johns plays a supposedly tough guy villain who at one point even threatens Ward with retribution.

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.
