Public Eye: Egg and Cress Sandwiches (ITV 7 Feb 1973, with Brian Blessed)

Published

on

In Egg and Cress Sandwiches Frank gets caught up in a poison pen letter case when an unconventional new vicar, William Pratt, at Hoxbury Parish Church is accused of being an adulterer.

The fabulous Brian Blessed is William Pratt, he’s actually very laid back here. He thinks that his first wife, living in London (but now suffering mental problems) could probably be behind the campaign. However when a valuable picture belonging to the church goes missing it looks there might be a bigger mystery going on. As Marker investigates he learns that Pratt is not the only person getting letters.

The two cases turn out to be unconnected and only the one involving the picture is solved by Frank and Firbank. Although we the audience get to see hat it was in fact Pratt’s first wife sending the letters.

Ray Smith is excellent in this episode too, especially when Firbank is trying his best to act posh at afternoon tea.

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.
