One By One: We Called In The Experts (BBC-1 29 Jan 1984 with Garfield Morgan)

Published

UK / BBC One / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast 29 January 1984

Writer: Anthony Read / Production Design: John Coleman / Director: Christopher Baker

Series: One By One / Season 1 Episode 1

In the first episode of One By One, We Called In The Experts, young Donald Turner, newly qualified as a vet and looking for a suitable practice returns to his home town and begins working for the somewhat cantankerous Maurice Webb. Maurice has a contract with Bellington Zoo (mainly because his brother-in-law runs it) and Donald is surprised to find himself dealing with elephants and a chimpanzee who bites a finger off of his mate over a fight for some Asperagus. Meanwhile Shirley Harblaster whom Donald knew as a kid is keen to get to know Donald better.

Good opening episode with Donald heading home and moving in with his gran when he starts working for Webb. Paddy, the head zoo keeper at Bellington makes his first appearance too, although he is quick to take the mickey out of Donald it is clear he does actually like him. Peter Jeffrey’s Maurice Webb is all brusque effeciency, take no nonsense and at this stage sees Donald as very wet behind the ears.

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.
