Shoestring:The Partnership (BBC-1, 9 Dec 1979 Michelle Newell)

Published

on

In The Partnership, the penultimate episode of season one, Sonia asks Eddie to investigate when she thinks her friend Jenny Kelson is being intimidated but as usual there is far more to the story than Eddie at first realises. Digging deeper he realises that Jenny’s artist boyfriend Brian Kelson maybe the key link in a property robbery scheme.

A quiet, under stated episode with Eddie realises that not everything has an answer. Watch out for a cameo from a young Kevin Whately playing a supposedly well known soccer player.

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.
