on

In Choice we get to meet the various members of the Salvation Army group, especially Major Gibbs and his family, his wife and teenage children Hannah and Bramwell. Young Bramwell is a vital part of the band but is just as dedicated to his football. He has been picked to play for the district in an important match which just so happens to coincide with a big Salvation Army event when young Bramwell will be given a commission.

Lt Mary Barker takes a young runaway under her wing, he is unwilling to reveal any details about himself but it soon becomes clear that he is unable to read and write.

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.
