The Onedin Line: Mutiny (BBC-1 24 Dec 1971, John Thaw)

Published

on

More problems for James in Mutiny, he has chartered a ship to transport fruit but the crew have mutinied at Brest claiming the captain has gone mad. James needs to act quickly to save the cargo and the life of the captain. His problem lies in trying to discover whether the crew are lying or if the captain is.

Once James has taken over command of the ship things settle down somewhat and the crew agrees to return to England. First mate Carby, the chief instigator of the mutiny, then shows James evidence that someone is trying to sabotage the ship.

On home front Elizabeth has a moment when she and Albert run in to Daniel Fogarty in town. Fogarty says nothing about the baby but later turns up at Elizabeth’s house. Anne and Robert only make a short appearance in this episode once James arrives home.

Something of a fabulous cast in this one, John Thaw is the mate leading the mutiny, Iain Cuthbertson is the captain confined to quarters and who does turn out to be somewhat mad. John Abineri from Survivors also pops up.

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.
