Wilde Alliance: Affray in Amsterdam (ITV 28 Mar 1978, with Diane Keen)

Published

on

In Affray in Amsterdam Rupert and Amy spend a few days in holiday in Amsterdam and very quickly get mixed up with a woman, Estelle, who is caught up in an illegal emerald mining operation in South America.

Clearly Estelle is not quite all she seems but without not really knowing exactly what it is going on the whole thing does provide a nicely useful plot for Rupert’s next novel.

There’s an appearance from John Bryans as a detective who helps bring in Estelle and her lover. Bryans had a key role in later seasons of fellow Yorkshire series Justice.

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.
