Villains: Grass (ITV 7 Oct 1972, Bryan Marshall, David Daker)

Published

on

The fallout from the Bog Robbers escape is the focus of Grass. Arnold Hepton was the chief organiser of the breakout from the prison van but he is now on the run himself after someone “grasses” him up.

He teams up with George but they both need a safe haven but things go wrong when they seek refuge with an old “colleague” – he just happens to be throwing a party and in a disagreement over a woman George is stabbed by one of the men there. His wound quickly becomes infected but going to the hospital is out of the question.

This episode effectively works as a follow up to the opening episode George with George’s girlfriend Franca getting the interrogation treatment from the police and George himself, along with Arnold, the main focus of the story.

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.
