Public Eye: The Bankrupt (ITV 8 Nov 1972, Gareth Thomas, Ray Barrett)

Published

on

New updated title sequence for the new season and a nice shot on location opening for season six’s first episode The Bankrupt with Frank getting a lift from hire car firm owner Tom Lewis who, played by Gareth Thomas, also appeared in season five only then he was called Briggs!

Frank has just lost a choice contract with a finance agent thanks to a client, the Rolls Royce driving Melville Hayden-Peters, that he performed a credit check on turning out to be a bankrupt and possible con-man. Hayden-Peters has also run up a large £1500 debt with Lewis who wants Frank to look at how he can get his money back.

It soon becomes clear that Hayden-Peters, played by Australian actor and Troubleshooters star Ray Barrett, is up to some sort of con.

“It never surprises me what people will do for money, what did you get out of it?” – Marker to Hayden-Peters solicitor Adams.

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.
