Season 1 Episode 8 (of 10)

Donald Sidwell (Timothy Carlton), an elderly, aristocratic gentleman, races home in his vintage car to Sidwell Hall and attempts to drag his agoraphobic daughter Olivia (Amy Marston) outside as shock treatment.

Meek employee Terence Brooks (Alun Raglan) summons the courage to tell him to stop. Later the family – including Olivia’s brother Edward (Andrew Havill) and niece Lily (Maya Gerber) – find Donald’s body, repeatedly stabbed to death, behind a locked door.

When Davey (Matt Bardock) and Jane (Claire Goose) arrive to interview the family, they all claim to have been together when Donald was killed. Local gossip from Jane’s Mum, Judith (Beatie Edney), together with Jane’s careful questioning, begin to show the cracks in this family’s story. And where is their priceless family heirloom, Napoleon’s Violin?

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.
