Public Eye: Horse and Carriage (ITV 20 Dec 1972, with Tony Melody)

Published

on

In Horse and Carriage it’s the festive season but Christmas isn’t really Frank Marker’s thing. Especially when his latest case sees him doing a lot of standing out on street corners keeping watch on Lil, a woman who is suspected of having an affair by her husband Harry.

Harry is insanely jealous of his wife but is it because he is hiding a secret of his own.

A nicely humorous script from Richard Harris, it very quickly becomes clear that Frank has worked for Harry many times before, and a catalogue of misunderstanding place this one firmly in comedy territory.

There lots of familiar TV faces popping up this episode too, besides the always excellent Tony Melody and Pat Heywood as Harry and Lil including Penny Spencer Roy Barraclough, Tony Selby and Michael Bates.

The end titles play out over a sitcom theme tune style Christmas Carol arrangement.

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.
