Thriller: The Colour Of Blood (ITV 12 May 1973, Norman Eshley)

Published

on

In The Colour Of Blood a first season episode of Thriller a young real estate agent is travelling by train to meet a prospective buyer for a remote house in the country, however the man she meets on the train is not the man she thinks he is but a just escaped killer who has a particular penchant for blondes.

A very good indeed central performance by Norman Eshley and a brilliant ending make this one of the real gems of the whole Thriller series. The atmosphere is generally creepy and well maintained throughout.

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.
