New Scotland Yard: The Money Game (ITV 15 Dec 1972)

Published

on

In The Money Game Kingdom and Ward investigate when Audrey Miller is mugged but her bag is left behind and is found to contain some £20,000 in forged bank notes. Miller claims she found the money in a phone box and despite being charged by Ward she is given bail.

Ward is determined to catch her in the act but Kingdom knows that the real catch would be the forger himself.

Ward is also anxious to get the case sorted out as soon as possible, he has leave due and has already had to cancel twice. He does end up deferring his leave once again and we learn a bit more about his personal life as it’s revealed that the single Ward is supposed was supposed to be taking his mum to the Costa Brava on holiday.

The real highlight of the episode would have to be Ward going undercover at the barbershop below the suspected forger’s flat. With his slicked back hair, no glasses and fake moustache he looks like a lounge lizard gone to seed.

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.
