Published

on

In The Vandals are Coming Billy speaks to Des and Sarah at the youth club and they persuade him to go to the police. Their response doesn’t fill Billy with the greatest of confidence. Meanwhile Allen’s henchman Franks pays The Anvil gang to step up the campaign to get Old Tom out of his house.

Sarah and Billy also seem to be getting on rather well, she knows he is not like the other kids from the gang. She also realises late on in the episode that her father has no intention of doing anything to help Old Tom. He in fact is rather feeling the pressure from Allen and is even willing to upsticks and move to another area all together.

The episode ends with Billy paying a visit to his grandfather only to find that his house has been completely ransacked.

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.
