The Sweeney: Jigsaw (ITV 30 Jan 1975, with Del Henney)

Published

on

In Jigsaw crook Eddie is Regan’s prime suspect in a factory robbery. The night watchman was badly injured but Eddie has the perfect alibi – he was in the pub with Regan at the time of the robbery.

Regan is convinced that Eddie was somehow involved but his harrassment of the villain puts a prominent MP on his case.

The fabulous Del Henney guest stars as Eddie, he scored his biggest success in two seasons of Fallen Hero later in the decade. Sheila Gish plays his wife June.

We also get the first glimpse into Carter’s home life, his wife, a teacher, is none too impressed by the amount of time he spends on the job. In fact she is convinced that if George spends any more time with Regan he will turn up just like him.

Waterman and Turner had played brother and sister a short time earlier in Special Branch episode Stand and Deliver.

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.
