Thriller: Sign It Death (ITV 9 Mar 1974, Francesca Annis)

Published

on

In Sign It Death, the last Thriller episode of season two Francesca Annis stars as Tracy Conway who develops a deadly crush on a businessman she bumps into in the street, it isn’t long before she has bumped off his secretary, taken her place and made her self indespensible. Realising that Main is very much in love with his wife Conway decides that she must kill again.

A great finish to the second season with a strong central performance from the gorgeous Ms Annis, it’s made clear from the outset that she has psychotic tendencies. The episodes opens with the murder of another businessman and although we don’t see her face it is obviously supposed to be Tracy Conway. Sheila Fearn, best known for her roles in Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads and George and Mildred, plays the secretary that is murdered by Annis so that she can take her place and be closer to Richard.

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.
