The Siege of Golden Hill: Beseiged (ITV 13 Jul 1975, with Gregory Munroe)

Published

on

In Beseiged Des, knowing that Allen is about to ramp up his campaign to get Old Tom out of his house, has come up with an idea. He wants to have a surprise waiting in store for the vandals when they turn up.

With Kenny’s help he manages to talk quire a few of the Anvil gang into helping. They also get Sam’s help who persuades all the local market stall holders to give them their scraps to use as “ammunition” when the vandals arrive.

Meanwhile Des is busy taking pictures and Sara is busing letting the police and the press know what is happening.

The fallout doesn’t do a lot for Allen’s scheme. It’s also the catalyst for Sara’s Dad getting a backbone and putting things to rights.

Despite this being a 12 parter there is something of a sense of closure with this sixth episode, Old Tom, having won the battle but knowing the war will ultimately be lost, knows he has to move but at least now it will be on his own terms.

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.
