Time For Murder: Dust To Dust (ITV 7 Dec 1985, Patricia Hodge)

Published

on

“Middle aged lady of good family with some wealth wishes to correspond with a single gentleman with a view to eventual marriage. A long and exhaustive investigation by correspondence must be expected before eventual meeting. Serious persons need not fear that their application will not be given careful consideration in the strictest confidence.”

Margaret Tutting has a habit of meeting men through lonely hearts ads however her suitors don’t realise just what is in store for them but maybe she has met her match in Auston Tupp.

Wood is a brilliant writer but this has a real air of unattractiveness about it. Patricia Hodge is at her glamorous best and William Simons (Alf Ventress from Heartbeat) is downright gruesome as gardener Strapp.

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.
