Published

on

In Conspiracy teenager Jim Wolcott steps in when he sees a foreign kid being bullied by a group of young thugs, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with the boy who is from Czechoslavakia. Unable to pronounce his name Jim nicknames him Soldier.

Soldier whilst in the library overhears a pair of criminals planning what seems to be a murder plot. Jim and Soldier tell the police but they don’t believe them….

An excellently gritty opening episode, despite having rescued Soldier from bullies Jim isn’t too keen on him following him around but can’t quite stop himself getting involved when Soldier decides to keep investigating after the police send them packing.

A youngish Richard Wilson pops up as Dr Wilson who is organising the school play.

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.
