New Scotland Yard: The Palais Romeo (ITV 13 May 1972)

Published

on

In The Palais Romeo a serial killer is at large, his target is middle-aged women who frequent nightclubs. Kingdom and Ward pull in young Joseph Marriot whose own older wife is one of the victims.

Kingdom is convinced of Marriott’s guilt, Ward though has his concerns.

A claustrophobic episode this. Much of it given over to the interrogation of the weaselly Marriott, played by Richard O’Callaghan who specialised somewhat in this kind of roles in the early seventies. O’Callaghan is the son of actress Patricia Hayes.

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.
