The Brothers: Echoes (BBC-1 24 Mar 1974)

The Brothers

In Echoes its an episode of personal relationships as each of the brothers have changing fortunes, David and Jill are delicately trying to recover their marriage but Julie is still making her presence felt. Meanwhile Edward has invited Jennifer to Dover for the weekend and it seems their on-off relationship might well be back on again. Brian too, even if he doesn’t realise it, has major marriage problems on the horizon, Ann has fallen for the dubious charms of Nicholas Fox. She talks to Pamela Graham to try and get her thoughts straight but only ends up even more confused.

Both Julie and Nicholas Fox are not overly likeable characters but both seem to be able to wrap their intended “targets” around their little fingers but good to see Edward and Jennifer finally sorting out their differences! Watch out for a small appearance from Stephen Yardley who would of course go on to play Ken Masters in Gerard Glaisters sea faring soap Howard’s Way (very much a show in the mould of The Brothers), this was the second appearance by an Howard’s Way cast member in successive episodes.
