Published

on

In File It Under Fear a killer is stalking the streets of a small English town, targetting young women walking home alone late at night, librarian Liz Morris is unconcerned about the attacks and turns amateur detective to try and solve the murders.

A classic episode of Thriller really, very strong plot, lots of well known faces and an exciting finale. The younger names in the cast, Maureen Lipman and Jan Francis were all pretty much unknowns at the time but of course all went on to have leading careers.

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.
