Shadows Of Fear: Did You Lock Up? (ITV 17 June 1970, Michael Craig)

Published

on

In Did You Lock Up? the opening episode of the anthology series Shadows of Fear couple Peter and Moira Astle find that their house has been broken into whilst they were out celebrating their wedding anniversary.

Peter is unable to let the the theft go and is determined to make sure it doesn’t happen again…

Writer Roger Marshall based the script on an incident from his own life. This episode was clearly testing the waters for a complete series run – it was another seven months before the rest of the Shadows of Fear episodes aired.

Shadows of Fear Did You Lock Up?

The fabulous Ray Smith, one of the hardest working character actors of the decade, plays Detective Newman. He also appeared in another Shadows of Fear episode. In Sour Grapes he was on the other side of the law.

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.
