Public Eye: Who Want’s To Be Told Bad News? (ITV 25 Aug 1971, Glynn Edwards)

Published

on

In Who Wants to Be Told Bad News? Frank gets involved in a case brought to him by estate agent Alfred Bain who is about to rent out a cottage to Indian Suresh Dhanar. The man, who claims to be an accoutant, is newly arrived in the country and has no references so Bain wants Marker to look into his background.

What neither Bain or Marker knows is that Dhanar has already moved his extensive family into the cottage. Dhanar and his family are also touring the shops of Windsor racking hire purchases at the drop of a hat.

The excellent Madhav Sharma is the con-man Dhanar and Glynn Edwards, who also had a main role in The Main Chance around this time, is the estate agent Bain.

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.
