The Brothers: A Clean Break (BBC-1 1 Feb 1976)

the-brothers-1976

In A Clean Break matters have reached the point of no return with Ted and Jennifer’s baby. The mother is adamant she wants him back and there isn’t a great deal they can do about it. Jennifer is completely distraught and typically Merroney is more interested in the fact that Ted’s work is suffering.

Very sad episode of The Brothers this, almost the whole focus is on Ted and Jenny and Jenny in particular is finding the situation hard to cope with. It’s nice to see the way the family and the Riley’s rally round and even Clare Miller has a harsh word to say to Merroney over his ideas on the subject. Dr Who regular Ian Marter pops up here as the husband of the mother who gave William up.
