Public Eye: The Man Who Said Sorry (ITV 13 Dec 1972, with Paul Rogers)

Published

on

Something of an out of character episode is The Man Who Said Sorry as Frank is visited by middle-aged Barrett who blames Marker for the position he is in – divorced and without access to his kids. He is planning suicide but wants Frank to feel guilty first!

Marker is having none of it and makes it plain to Barrett just whose fault it is that he is in the position he is in.

45 of the 50 minutes take place in Frank’s office before Barrett heads to the station to throw himself under a train and Frank (not knowing this) heads to the pub.

The episode is almost totally a two hander between Frank and Barrett until Percy turns up at the pub.

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.
