Wilde Alliance: The Private Army Of Colonel Stone (ITV 14 Feb 1978 with John Fraser)

Published

on

In The Private Army of Colonel Stone, Rupert is asked by his Aunt Rachel to look into the death of her son who had been on an expedition in South Africa with Colonel Stone and died in strange circumstances. Not only that but Stone has now taken over his cottage in the country. It is clear that there is far more to the expedition than Stone is revealing but the answers that Rupert and Amy uncover are not what they expected.

A great turn from John Fraser as Colonel Stone and a plot that turns things on their head in the last quarter of the show.

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.
