Villains: George (ITV 22 July 1972, David Daker)

Published

on

Villains dealt with the fall out from a major bank robbery planned by nine men, this episode focused on the character of George as the “Bog Robbers” as they were known headed to the appeal court.

At the midway point the whole gang escape from prison (in a great raid set up by Bryan Marshall’s Hepton as the gang are on their way to appeal court).

A fabulous cast is the real highlight of this opening instalment of the Villains anthology series, each episode mainly focused on a different villain with flashbacks exploring how they came to be where they were.

David Daker had quite the line in menacing characters in his early roles before mellowing out in Boon during the 1980′s.

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.
