The Sweeney: One of Your Own (ITV 9 Nov 1978, with Michael Elphick)

Published

on

In One of Your Own Carter goes undercover as a con to try and bring down diamond thief Fleet. George is forced to spend the night in Wormwood scrubs sharing a cell with Fleet to try and get inside knowledge. Once Fleet is out on appeal Carter works on befriending him but Fleet has some very dangerous friends. One of them, Kearney, wants the diamonds for himself.

When Fleet thinks Kearney has kidnapped his girlfriend Tina, he and George set out rescue her. Tina though is playing her own game – she is also having an affair with the diamond merchant that Fleet stole the gems from in the first place and, looking after the loot for Fleet, plans to head off to Amsterdam.

Another fabulous Michael Elphick guest appearance, Fleet and Carter end up with a kind of grudging respect.

Daniels (played by John Alkin), a member of the squad in almost every episode during the couple of seasons actually gets quite a bit of the action with George out of the way. There is a funny subplot featuring a somewhat friendly girlfriend of George’s who has a thing for cops and ends up spending the night with first Regan and then Daniels.

Sweeney One of Your Own

George nearly gets a real pasting at the hands of the none too friendly Kearney.

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.
