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

Published

on

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.

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.
