Special Branch: Visitor From Moscow (ITV 10 Dec 1969, with Jack Shepherd)

Published

on

In Visitor From Moscow Jordan is babysitting visiting Russian Lt Colonel Kamarov who is looking after the arrangements for a forthcoming UK visit by a prominent Russian VIP. Kamarov is keen to see the sites and is getting on well with Jordan but he is also keen to see that potential troublemaker Peter Watson detained in case he does anything to stir up trouble during the dignitaries.

Watson has become something of a political agitator. He is engaged to a Russian girl but hasn’t seen her for six years because she keeps being refused an exit visa.

The brilliant Jack Shepherd plays Watson and there is short appearance from Ronald Magil best known for his long running role as Amos Brearley on Emmerdale Farm.

Hazell: Hazell and the Big Sleep (ITV 24 May 1979, with Ian Marter)

Hazell Nicholas Ball

In Hazell and the Big Sleep, James goes undercover at an hotel, posing as a wealthy antiques expert from America. He has been hired by an old police colleague who now runs security at the hotel. Somebody is stealing on a pretty intense level.

There are plenty of suspects it would seem, from the concierges on the front desk, to various of the residents.

A chance meeting at the hotel with Choc Minty sees Hazell more or less being blackmailed into working for him – two Mafioso’s have arrived from the US and Minty wants Hazell to find out what they are up to. Especially as various big time London heavies are also showing up to pay their respects to them.

The so-called Australian girl who Hazell has been getting friendly with is actually an FBI agent, also on the trail of the two Mafia gents.

Not the best episode of the series by a long shot. The playing by all concerned is way too big for a start. Star Wars fans may find the episode of interest though for it’s brief appearance by Peter Mayhew who is best known for playing Chewbacca.
