Orange Is The New Black: Tall Men with Feelings (Netflix 11 July 2013)



In Tall Men With Feelings the inmates are struggling to come to terms with Tricia’s death, they believe that she killed herself; Thanks to Piper and Alex’s game playing Pennsatucky has been sent to the Psych ward but Piper feels bad and persuades Caputo that it was her fault and gets Pennsatucky back to the prison proper.

Red and Daya’s mother persuade Daya that she can keep her baby by having sex with Mendez and then claiming he raped her, this will also mean that Mendez will get the boot from the prison however things don’t go quite to plan when Mendez uses a condom.

Larry appears on public radio to talk about long distance relationships and with the whole prison listening in makes some unkind remarks about some of the inmates, including Crazy Eyes and Miss Claudette. Piper also realises, from things he says, that he knows she has been having an affair with Alex. During a phone call Larry reveals that Alex did give Piper’s name to the feds after all.

Flashbacks also deal with the end of Piper and Alex’s relationship.

It seems like Piper just can’t quite make any headway, every time she seems to be settling down something happens, in this case Larry’s radio talk.

Hazell: Hazell and Hyde (ITV 7 June 1979, with Maev Alexander)




Hazell Nicholas Ball

In Hazell and Hyde James is asked to find a young woman, Claudine, who has apparently joined a group of squatters. When Hazell tracks down the group he is told that they had forced her to move on – her drug use was causing big problems. When a body turns up it looks like Hazell has found her, and an identification by her father seems to confirm it. However Choc Minty quickly arrives on the scene and makes it plain the dead girl is not the Claudine he is looking for but a woman who had apparently crossed Claudine in some way.

Claudine actually turns out to be something of a psychopath and having killed once has decided to make her next target our intrepid hero.

Meanwhile Jim has finally found himself somewhere else to live, his old flat having been reclaimed by the fellow he lent him the use of it.

It’s definitely something of a walk on the seedier side of life for Hazell. Maev Alexander, wjho plays the disturbed Claudine, is best known for her role as Christine Russell in the first couple of seasons of Sutherland’s Law.

Hazell: Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost (ITV 31 May 1979, with Meg Davies)




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.
