New Scotland Yard: Prove It (ITV 10 Nov 1972, Ray Lonnen)

Published

on

In Prove It a local villain, Slee, is shot and left for dead. Kingdom and Ward investigate and discover a turf war involving big time gangster Terry Bowers.

Ward manages to get evidence that Bowers planned the hit. His chief witness Darbon, the man who actually pulled the trigger, initially agrees to bring Bowers down but then changes his mind and because Ward has more or less coerced Darbon into talking the evidence becomes worthless.

Typically Ward blunders in yet again, ruins the evidence and leaves Kingdom with no alternative but to let Bowers go. However he does have one last trick up his sleeve. After Slee regains consciousness Kingdom releases Darbon (charged with malicious wounding though) with the vague hope that it will prompt Bowers to do something stupid when he discovers that Darbon “shopped” him to the police.

The always excellent Ray Lonnen has the pivotal role in the episode as the cocksure Bowers.

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.
