TV Intruder, The (ITV 1972, James Bate, Sheila Ruskin) Published 2 years ago on August 24, 2016 A storyline almost worthy of Dennis Potter sees 8 part Granada teen drama serial The Intruder score perhaps a little higher than many of it’s contemporaries. 16 year old Arnold Haithwaite, something of a loner, is more than a little put out when his adoptive father allows the sinister Sonny (played with typical creepy elan by Milton Johns) to move into the family home. Arnold discovers that Sonny wants to turn the small seaside town of Skirlston into a proper tourist attraction. Arnold though is unsure of Sonny’s real motives. A major sub-plot involves Arnold teaming up with friends Jane and Peter to try and discover the true facts of his parentage. production details UK / ITV – Granada / 8×25 minute episodes / Broadcast Sunday 6 February – 26 March 1972 Writers: Mervyn Haisman, Peter Plummer / Novel: John Rowe Townshend / Production Design: Peter Caldwell / Producer: Peter Plummer cast James Bate as Arnold Haithwaite Sheila Ruskin as Jane Ellison Simon Turner as Peter Ellison Milton Johns as Sonny Jack Woolgar as Ernest Haithwaite Jean Alexander as Miss Binns Maggie Don as Norma Benson THE EPISODES 1.
