The Sweeney: Money, Money, Money (ITV 12 Oct 1978, with Edward Judd)

Published

on

In Money, Money, Money things get personal for Regan and Carter when an old friend of Jack’s is killed. Regan’s mate Eddie Monk, a reformed ex-con, has just won £58,000 on the pools and plans to open a nice little shop by the seaside.

An old job from his crooked days comes back to haunt him though when a blackmailer calls demanding ten grand or he will shop him to the police. When Eddie and his old partner Slemen try to take the blackmailer down Eddie is killed.

Despite the personal angle to the plot it’s still quite a typical episode with a car chase and a fight scene.

Besides the always excellent Edward Judd as Monk, there are lots of other well known faces popping up including Glynn Owen as Wally Hough, William Simons, Linal Haft and Michael Culver.

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.
