Sally Ann: The Reluctant Chosen (ITV 9 Dec 1979, with Mark Wynter)

Published

on

In The Reluctant Chosen accountant Benny Richardson helps an old man, Bellamy, he comes across in the park on his lunch break. He takes him to he Salvation Army hostel around the corner and is pretty impressed with the way they deal with him. He feels he is getting “a call” and is keen to find out more but doesn’t know if he has the stomach for the work the Sally Ann does.

Meanwhile Major Cartwright has major trouble with an agressive and drunken homeless man.

Having grown up within the Sally Ann Hannah is still keen to sample what the real world has to offer.

Each episode tends to deal with an issue that the Salvation Army faces, the half hour running time does mean that they tend to be quite simplistic, such as here when Benny goes from being slightly interested to being ready to give it everything in the space of a couple of minutes.

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.
