Sally Ann: A Sailor’s Farewell (ITV 11 Nov 1979, with Frederick Treves)

Published

on

A Sailor’s Farewell is a continuation of the previous episode A Sailor’s Return. Old sailor Banjo has made some strong allegations against Major Cartwright, including the fact that he is the real father of his son Johnny. The pair had been at sea together and best friends for many years, both had succumbed to alcoholism but Cartwright had been able to turn his life around with the Salvation Army.

It’s clear Banjo is more than likely telling the truth about his sons parentage, but Cartwright knows that Banjo needs Johnny. Major Cartwright also finds time to help troubled James Pope, a former accountant who now lives rough after serving a prison sentence for embezzlement.

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.
