Thriller: The Next Scream You Hear (ITV 6 Jul 1974, Richard Todd)

Published

on

The Next Scream You Hear begins when prominent businessman Bernard Peel is accused of murdering his wife. His firm bring in Private Detective extraordinaire Matthew Earp who very quickly realises that the case is not a straight forward one; with more than one person involved covering up vital evidence.

Second appearance for the character of Matthew Earp (the only time this happened throughout the whole run of the series, Earp also appeared in the season one episode An Echo Of Theresa). Clemens has said that he hoped to turn the Earp character into a spin off series but it unfortunately never materialised. it’s actually a deliberately low key, straight forward mystery story. Good guest appearances too from a couple of stalwarts of British cinema in the shape of Richard Todd and Derek Bond. Incidentally Christopher George’s real life wife Lynda Day George had appeared in the previous weeks Thriller Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are.

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.
