The Sweeney: Golden Boy (ITV 27 Feb 1975, with John Nolan)

Published

on

In Golden Boy crooked Deller is planning a gold bullion job but needs help getting the gold out of the country. He wants ex-con turned wealthy businessman Bernie Conway to get involved and is willing to blackmail him to ensure he does.

Meanwhile Potter, a colleague of Regan’s, has heard that something may be going on and gives Carter the nod. The trail leads to drunken snout Harry Fuller who is suddenly flush with cash. When Fuller lets Deller know the police are on his tail Deller loses his temper and accidentally kills Fuller.

There is a funny subplot involving the Organisation and Methods Department who are conducting a survey on the Flying Squad’s operations. Much to Jack’s disgust of course. So much so that he continually does his best to get Bradshaw, the man who is conducting the survey, secretly drunk by spiking his lemonade with vodka.

Like the previous episode (Cover Story) guest star Prunella Gee, John Nolan had recently made a name for himself with a lead role in the very popular Shabby Tiger series.

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.
