Time For Murder: The Murders At Lynch Cross (ITV 1985, Terence Alexander)

Published

on

The Murders At Lynch Cross takes us to a snow bound hotel where a quintet of guests discover sinister connections with each other, then when a dead body turns up they discover that an escaped prisoner is on the loose…

Like a cross between the classic Agatha Christie style story And Then There Were None and J.B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls, with everyone being connected in some way. All very hysterical and over-cooked with a good cast floundering some what.

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.
