Episodes Sally Ann: A Sailor’s Return (ITV 4 Nov 1979, with Patrick Troughton) Published 2 years ago on May 8, 2017 In A Sailor’s Return the platoon have more than a few problems to deal with at the hostel. Bernie is a regular who seems to have an answer for everything; James Pope is a former civil servant now living rough and Simon is a young man in his late teens/early twenties who is having trouble with his parents. Meanwhile Major Cartwright crosses swords with old sailor Banjo who he knew back in his Merchant Navy days. Banjo is convinced that Cartwright was responsible for the death of his wife. Given that this went out in an early evening Sunday night slot it doesn’t pull it’s punches, both in terms of dialogue and situation. There’s a strong scene in the local pub when sailor Banjo lets rip about his feelings on religion when Mrs Major Gibbs is handing out pamphlets. In fact there is quite a naturalistic feel about the series as a whole. Joe Melia as knower Bernie. Some excellent guest stars popping up in this episode too, notably Patrick Troughton but there are also appearances from the excellent Joe Melia as an old prison colleague of Pike’s and Frederick Treves as Pope. production details UK / ITV – Southern / 1×25 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 4 November 1979 at 6.00pm Writer: Anne Valery / Production Design: Greg Lawson / Director: Tristan de Vere Cole Series: Sally Ann Episode 2 (of 8) cast Gerald James as Major Cartwright Stephanie Cole as Mrs Major Gibbs Carol Leader as Lieutenant Mark Barker Philip da Costa as Bramwell Patrick Troughton as Banjo Dave Parke as Johnny Frederick Treves as James Pope Joe Melia as Bernie Tony Sympson as Screwy Kevin Hart as Simon Mollie Maureen as Nelly Anne ValeryFrederick TrevesITVJoe MeliaPatrick TroughtonSally AnnSouthernTristan de Vere ColeTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes14 hours ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
