Wire In The Blood: Falls The Shadow (ITV1 26 Sep – 3 Oct 2008)

Published

on

UK / ITV1 – Coastal / 2×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 26 September – 3 October 2008

Writer: Charlie Fletcher / Director: Richard Curson-Smith

Series: Wire in the Blood / Season 6 Episodes 3 and 4

Tony is prime suspect in a murder case involving an old colleague of his, Rachel, with whom he had come close to spending the night and also the murder of a fellow clinical psychologist. Alex meanwhile is finding all her time taken up with a serial killer stalking prostitutes with two victims already to his name.

Trying to find a link between the killings that would also clear his name Tony puts himself in very real danger from the killer and even as he begins to unravel the clues that could crack the case it may be just too late for him to do so.

Again a hugely unsettling atmosphere hangs over the drama at times and the writers definitely need to get out of the habit of having Tony being either a potential victim or suspect. Robson Green is great though and the show would no doubt have folded long since if he wasn’t in it.

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.
