Thriller: Death To Sister Mary (ITV 15 Jun 1974, Robert Powell)

Published

on

In excellent episode of Thriller Death To Sister Mary Penny is an actress playing a nun, Sister Mary, on a popular soap opera. Strange accidents have been happening to the people around not least the death of her fiance. Are they linked to the arrival on the scene of Sister Mary’s number one fan Mr Rook who seems to have great difficulty separating fact from fiction.

Thriller Death To Sister MaryBrilliant casting once again including the usual big name American guest star in the shape of George Maharis who gets top billing despite not being the main character. One of the most overused shots in Thriller is the quick zoom in from a crime to a close up of a woman laughing which once again is used to great effect here.

Again it’s the kind of thing that has been overdone in later years but Clemens was at the forefront of things. One does occasionally wonder with Thriller whether main man Clemens had a a big white board of ideas that he would cross off. The stalker one, check. The slasher one, check. The escaped lunatic, check. Great fun though. Robert Powell would crop up in a couple of episodes over the run of the series.

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.
