The Onedin Line: Homecoming (BBC-1 3 Dec 1971, Bryan Marshall)

Published

on

In Homecoming James has been away for three long months leaving Anne to set up their new home by herself. Anne is surprised when Michael Adams, who having been away for four years turns up. It’s clear that Adams and Anne have something of a history. James is not happy when he returns to discover Adams and Anne having dinner.

To get him away from Anne James employs Adams for the Charlotte Rhodes latest journey. Anne however has determined that she will be sailing on this voyage too.

There is a good appearance from the always dependable Bryan Marshall as Adams who once on board seems to be hiding something. He is – it turns out he believes he is a wanted man. Accused of murder of a fellow sailor on his first voyage. Thanks to fellow crewman George Bethel Adams learns that the  Captain entered the man’s death as an accident. It isn’t enough for Adams to know that he isn’t actually wanted he also wants Bethell to sign a document that says he and several other crew members were in fact responsible for the man’s death. Bethell of course will do no such thing and in the fight that ensues Bethell ends up swept overboard.

The changeable Elizabeth has decided that having married Albert Frazer she must tell him the truth that the baby she is carrying is not his but Daniel Fogarty’s. Thankfully for her she sees sense and in the end doesn’t say anything.

It’s good to see that James is genuinely jealous when Adams turns up on the scene too. The dynamic between Anne and James is truly excellent.

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.
