The Onedin Line: When My Ship Comes Home (BBC-1 10 Dec 1971)

Published

on

In When My Ship Comes Home a ship belonging to Callon but with a cargo of James’s aboard is lost at sea. The ship and cargo were insured but James hits trouble when the insurance company refuses to pay out because his pick up cargo on the journey home included gunpowder. Worse still the insurance company hold him responsible for both the loss of the cargo and the ship. If James has to pay out to Callon he will surely be ruined.

He needs to raise £2000 to pay off Callon and in the fallout Robert has been locked out of his shop and home forcing him and Sarah to lodge with James and Anne. The Charlotte Rhodes has also been placed under guard. James though has one last throw of the dice up his sleeves.

After slowing building up the Onedin Line James almost loses everything here. Weak willed Robert is ready to throw in the towel and sign over his shop to Callon but you know James won’t give up easily. Even if that means stealing his boat back and running guns for rebels.

Despite raising enough money to pay off his creditors the repercussions from James’ actions threaten to resonate across the rest of the season.

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.
