The Sweeney: Big Brother (ITV 22 Sep 1975, with Maurice Roeves)

Published

on

In Big Brother Regan and Carter have pulled in a couple of suspects, Lee and Deacon, over a wages snatch. Carter witnesses Regan grabbing 19 year old Dixon in a bit of rough handling, Dixon then collapses to the ground.

When Dixon ends up in hospital the news is not good for Regan, he has a ruptured kidney and shows signs of having suffered a heavy beating. We know that Regan didn’t actually do anything that would warrant such injuries but everybody is not so sure, especially given Regan’s reputation.

Dixon’s older brother Phil is a major gangster and is determined to get revenge on Regan.

If Regan is to save his career he needs to find out who really dished out the beating to Dixon.

The excellent Maurice Roeves is in fine form as Phil Deacon and other well known faces include Gwen Taylor who plays Jack’s scrabble playing new parole officer girlfriend. On The Buses legend Michael Robbins is the other suspect pulled in by Regan and Carter. David Dixon is the younger Deacon brother.

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.
