The Siege of Golden Hill: Bribery (ITV 29 Jun 1975, with John Malcolm)

Published

on

In Bribery Allen has stepped up his campaign against Old Tom, having arranged for the Anvil gang to smash up the old feller’s house. When Bill sees a calling card left behind by the gang he knows they were responsible. He confronts Jacky and makes him tell him who put them up to it.

Jacky’s number two in the gang, Kenny, is none too impressed that the house they vandalised belonged to Old Tom.

Sarah’s dad tries to tell Allen to cool it but Allen makes it plain that he will the use the knowledge that he has been taking money in exchange for information against him. Allen himself then pays a visit to Old Tom and when he gets nowhere tells his henchman Franks that the “gloves are off” – meaning it’s going to get a lot worse for the old man.

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.
