Public Eye: John VII Verse 24 (ITV 29 Sep 1971, with Jeremy Bulloch)

Published

on

It’s a tricky one for Frank in John VII Verse 24 when a policeman’s wife comes to him asking him to investigate the fact that her husband is being victimised by a Detective Inspector on the make – his name? Percy Firbank!

There is a good chance for Percy to shine in this episode, especially in the scene where he puts Frank in his place “you don’t want another spell inside, do you.” By the end of the episode, and the fifth season, Percy has explained exactly what he was up to – leaving Frank with no small amount of egg on his face.

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.
