New Scotland Yard: The Stone (ITV 25 Aug 1973)

Published

on

In The Stone it seems everybody has something to hide when a civil servant is found dead in his flat. The man worked for the Central Office of Information and was discovered by a work colleague who removes some papers before Kingdom and Ward turn up.

Meanwhile Secker, the boyfriend of murdered man’s daughter Robin, is lying about how well he knew the victim.

The emphasis is very much on psychology of crime in The Stone. As Kingdom and Ward investigate it soon becomes clear there is the threat of blackmail over the homosexuality of the victim.

Carolyn Courage who plays Robin has the best role, a nicely hippy-ish anti-police stance at the start and a world that is falling apart by the end.

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.
