Wilde Alliance: Flower Power (ITV 24 Jan 1978, James Villiers)

Published

on

In Flower Power things get off to a very strange start when Amy is asked to tea by a group of old ladies, also there is the local librarian and a businessman who just happens to be an old flame of Amy’s. Initially it seems they are campaigning for a lake to be made in a local beauty spot but it seems there is far more to the story than they are revealing and a long lost orchid holds the key to the unravelling of the mystery.

The eccentricity of the series is well to the fore in this episode with elderly ladies listening to rock music and talking of the charts. Some good business with James Villiers as Roper who is desperate to woo Amy much to the disgust of Rupert. It’s all good fun with an opening more akin to an episode of Ace of Wands, not so much a mystery this one then more of a farce!

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.
