New Scotland Yard: And When You’re Wrong (ITV 15 July 1972)

Published

on

In And When You’re Wrong Ward is investigating a series of art robberies. He has a contact on the inside, Charles Prentice, that he is working on getting info out of but then Prentice is murdered.

Ward, who all too often gets about dressed like a member of the Gestapo from a war movie, is playing things close to his chest in this episode and it leads to a major confrontation with Kingdom with Ward accusing his boss of trying to squeeze him out. Ward refuses to let things go and Kingdom tells him he will be facing a disciplinary hearing.

A good prominent guest appearance from Sheila Fearn who would have major roles in two 1970’s iconic sitcoms Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads and George and Mildred.

A reasonably strong season finale episode especially in the scenes between Kingdom and Ward although there is some dodgy over-acting from Robert Fyfe as Charles Prentice.

classic quote
“There’s only one thing worse than an ex-copper and thats an ex-copper doing time.” – Kingdom to Ward when he begins to have suspicions about Wards involvement in the case.

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.
