New Scotland Yard: Perfect in Every Way (ITV 17 June 1972)

Published

on

In Perfect in Every Way a young man, Terence Remick, out walking in a park discovers a dead body, it’s revealed to be a former policeman who John Kingdom worked with some years before. Remick decides to go to the press, Kingdom’s brother in law Harry Carson in particular, claiming he saw a man leaving the scene but Inspector Ward is convinced he is lying about how much he knows.

A strong glimpse into Kingdom’s troubled home life in this episode too as the death of the ex-policeman gives him pause for thought on his failed marriage. He even goes so far as to visit his estranged wife and by episodes end has admitted that he wants to give their marriage another try. Ward and Kingdom have a wonderfully antagonistic relationship, very much on display here. They clearly do not like each other very much!

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.
