Wilde Alliance: Some Trust in Chariots (ITV 11 Apr 1978, with Mela White)

Published

on

In Some Trust in Chariots, the final episode of the series, it looks like Debbie Stewart, a close friend of Amy’s, may be losing her mind when she keeps seeing her sister who is living in America back in the UK and photographic evidence proves to have something of a ghostly effect.

Of course with a book to write that’s all the info Rupert needs to put his work aside and investigate what is going on. The episode generates quite a spooky feel for much of it, the answer when Rupert and Amy get to it though is more straight forward but still doesn’t end well for Debbie.

There is a slight anomaly when downstairs neighbour Mr Bailey asks Rupert to mind a box of stuff for him as he might be “harassed” Amy seems to have no idea that Mr Bailey is in the “blue film” industry despite having had several conversations about his work throughout the series.

Mela White, who plays Debbie Stewart, is best known for her long running role on Bergerac where she played nightclub owner Diamante Lil.

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.
