The Sweeney: Chalk and Cheese (ITV 1 Sep 1975, with Lesley-Anne Down)

Published

on

In Chalk and Cheese a pair of modern day Highwaymen are targeting the wealthy as they either head out for the night or are returning home. They are clearly getting their tip-offs from someone on the inside.

The crooks, working class Tommy Garret and well to do Nunn, have been brought together by the beautiful Caroline. She is a former girlfriend of Nunn’s and is now with Tommy. It just so happens that Tommy is a very old friend of Carters from his boxing days. Nunn is in deep with gambling debts and is something of a loose cannon. With the Sweeney closing in he pushes Tommy into taking on a job that goes badly wrong.

An excellent line up of guest stars for the season two opener led by Shane Briant and Manfred Mann singer Paul Jones as the villains, the gorgeous Lesley-Anne Down as the girl giving them their tip-off. As well as appearances from David Lodge and Jeremy Child.

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.
