The highly impressive conspiracy thriller The Shadow Line starts this week and begins with the murder of Harvey Wrattan, one of the UK’s biggest gang land figures who had only just come out of prison after getting a Royal Pardon.

DI Gabriel who has just returned to work after being shot on an undercover job; his partner was killed and Gabriel suffered amnesia with a bullet lodged in his head is given the task of investigating the murder with his partner Detective Sergeant Honey. Meanwhile one of Wratten’s men, Joseph Bede is also keen to discover just who killed him and why money man Glickman has gone missing.

On the basis of the first episode The Shadow Line clearly has the potential to be one of the shows of the year, it has a fabulous cast and clever script and a real air about it.

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.
