New Scotland Yard: Reunion (ITV 8 July 1972, Robin Ellis)

Published

on

In Reunion Steve Thomas escapes from prison, a short time later a solicitor is found robbed of eleven pounds and murdered. Thomas is obviously prime suspect but why would he steal such a small amount of money. Meanwhile Thomas is taken in by a young woman called Tricia. Thomas claims to be innocent of murder and is desperate to see his wife. Tricia decides to help him.

Another high quality episode with strong playing from all concerned. Nicholas Palmer turns in one of the best scripts of the first season so far.

Sharon Duce looks gorgeously fab as hippy would be revolutionary Tricia who shelters Thomas (played by future Poldark star Robin Ellis).

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.
