In Feet of Clay Regan and Carter are on secondment to the serious crime squad trying to crack a case involving a group of toughs who are mugging wealthy Arab businessmen when they leave various gambling clubs.

Meanwhile former informer Alan Ember desperately needs Regan’s help. His adult son, Paul, has gone missing and Ember is receiving threatening phone calls. Regan goes out on his own to help him.

In a bit of a subplot George seems to be getting quite serious with his latest girlfriend, although we don’t see anything of her other than a brief shot of her in bed but they are apparently living together.

The Sweeney Feet of Clay Cheryl Campbell

Cheryl Campbell is Erica, a casual girlfriend of Paul’s.

Lots of well known faces popping up in this strong episode. The always lovely Carol Drinkwater plays an old flame of Regans, Geoffrey Palmer is the serious crime squad boss Regan and Carter are working under. Cheryl Campbell is a girlfriend of the missing Paul. Meanwhile the brilliant Joss Ackland is the troubled Ember. Comedy actor John Junkin plays straight as the owner of a taxi yard.

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.
