The Siege of Golden Hill: Extortion (ITV 27 Jul 1975, with Rafiq Anwar)



In Extortion Jacky is putting the hard word on Suliman who, at least at the moment, is resisting giving him protection money. His uncle wants him to start paying out the weekly five pounds to stop Frank’s men causing any more problems but Suliman knows once they start it will just keep on getting worse.

Meanwhile Des and Co are somewhat surprised to find that the old lady they are helping is Jacky’s Auntie. Sara is concerned that Franks is deliberately trying to sabotage her dad’s election campaign – he is of course.

The arrival of Allen’s son Peter is a good new dynamic, he is clearly nothing like his father’s son but Billy is quick to tar him with the same brush.
