New Scotland Yard: The Come Back (ITV 29 April 1972)

Published

on

In The Come Back Kingdom and Ward investigate the brutal murder of an elderly, retired bank manager. There doesn’t seem to be any motive but violent petty crook David Collins might just be involved.

A young Kenneth Cranham takes centre stage in this quite violent story (especially when you consider that it aired at 7.00pm). He plays the thug Collins very well, he’s the kind of chap who is kind to his mum though (she’s played by Betty Romaine who would be a series regular on prison drama Within These Walls.) A young Kenneth Colley also makes an appearance as a garage mechanic who has a run in with Collins.

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.
