TV Shabby Tiger (ITV 1973, Prunella Gee, John Nolan) Published 2 years ago on April 8, 2017 Period drama serial Shabby Tiger took us back to the early 1930’s where Irish servant girl Anna Fitzgerald gets involved in Manchester bohemian life after falling for artist Nick Faunt. Having met in whilst Nick was camping and Anna was en route to Manchester the pair begin an uneasy love affair and set up house together. Although set in Manchester location filming for the series took place in Derbyshire, Manchester having been rejected for being too cleaned up and developed. The series was Prunella Gee’s first ever TV part and the success of the drama turned her into a major player. In fact all three of the leads were not particularly well known although John Nolan had appeared in Doomwatch. The title sequence and theme music is worthy of mention, very art deco. production details UK / ITV – Granada / 7×50 minute episodes / Broadcast 11 July – 22 August 1973 Wednesdays at 9.00pm Writer: Geoffrey Lancashire / Novel: Howard Spring / Music: Derek Hilton / Producer: Richard Everitt cast Prunella Gee as Anna Fitzgerald John Nolan as Nick Faunt Sharon Mughan as Rachel Rosing Howard Southern as Jacob “Mo” Rosing Nigel Havers as Toby Scriven THE EPISODES 1.
