One Of Us: The Storm (BBC-1 23 Aug 2016)

Published

on

In The Storm there is a massive shock in store for two families living on nearby farms in a remote Scottish Highlands village when newly weds Adam and Grace (Adam is the son from one family and Grace the daughter from the other) are horrifically murdered in Edinburgh. Still struggling to come to terms with what has happened the families are even more disturbed when, during a fierce storm, the murderer (we know who he is from the get go) crashes his car on the road outside the farms.

Supremely tense especially once the killer turns up on the doorstep. You think that it’s going to be a killer amongst us type scenario and then he too is just as brutally murdered and we are in more traditional whodunnit territory. With the killer dead in a barn, clearly killed by someone in the two families, the Elliot’s and the Douglas’s have to decide whether to call the police or cover things up. Events are taken out of their hands when Bill, head of the Douglas household, gets a call from the police to say they will be calling in to see them.

A thoroughly entertaining opening episode with enough going on to leave you highly intrigued with how the story will play out. There is also a subplot involving the cop, Juliet, who is investigating the murders of Adam and Grace, selling drugs on a large scale to finance a vital operation for her seriously ill daughter. Juliet is played by Laura Fraser who appeared in Breaking Bad as Lydia Rodarte-Quayle who ends up helping Walter White source supplies for his drug operation. There is also a development with Adrian Edmondson’s Peter – he is the ex-husband of Louise Elliot and shows no emotion whatsoever when he learns his son and daughter-in-law have been murdered.

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.
