Published

on


It the final episode of the penultimate season of Public Eye and in The Trouble With Jenny Frank is caught up in a case involving the attempted suicide of a young woman staying in the same hotel as him.

Having missed his station (because he fell asleep) Frank is forced to spend anight in a small hotel in Paddington, young Jenny Wellard is also staying there. The next morning the hotel owner is unable to wake Jenny and calls upon Frank to help. His timely interaction saves her life.

Her much older husband then asks Frank to look into just what led Jenny to the path she took. Frank discovers that Jenny (along with a group of other girls) is being blackmailed over a stay in hospital in 1967 dealing with an unwanted pregnancy.

Donald Burton turns in a nicely prickly performance as a local Paddington copper who is very antagonistic towards Frank. Petra Markham, who plays young Jenny, had recently been appearing in cult kids show Ace of Wands.
