The Onedin Line: Catch As Can (BBC-1 12 Nov 1971)

Published

on

In Catch As Catch Can Callon is furious that Onedin has stolen another customer, Mr Watson, from him. Callon makes it plain to Watson that he will make life very difficult for him if he doesn’t use Callon’s ships for all his business.

The wily Albert Frazer is still keen on Elizabeth and persuades James (along with Anne and Elizabeth) to pay a visit to the new house he has inherited on the pretext that his vexatious Aunt, who is still in situ, will look more favourably on him if he has company. James agrees if Frazer agrees to repair the Charlotte Rhodes at super speed and at a cut price rate. As usual when Fogarty, who returns home from sea unexpectedly early, finds out what Elizabeth is up to he hits the roof and tracks her down. In a full on episode Anne also discovers that Elizabeth is definitely pregnant with Daniel Fogarty’s child.

Michael Billington as Daniel Fogarty. Don’t make him angry. You won’t like him when he’s angry…

James has more problems thanks to Callon when his rival arranges for Baines to be pressganged (which basically involves him being attacked and dragged on board) onto another ship. James needs to act quickly to save Baines.

What’s really nice about these early episodes is the relationship between James and Anne. Despite their marriage of convenience there is a genuine rapport between them and it is clear that love is growing in them both.

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.
