The Brothers: Cross Currents (BBC-1 24 Oct 1976)

Published

on

In Cross Currents Jennifer and Edward are barely on speaking terms, things have gotten so bad that Ted has decided to move out for a few days just to get some thinking space. Meanwhile Jane is having a real time of it with the plans for the new airstrip, local residents are up in arms and make it plain they will do everything they can to get it stopped. Jane is surprised when Merroney comes up with an idea to see that it is passed.

An episode that belongs to Jennifer really, she is coming across as very bitter and angry in this season, she clearly detests Jane and at the end of this episode tells Mary Hammond that she believes two of her sons are having some kind of menage a trois with her (David, who is going through something of a stagnant phase with the company would definitely like to get to know Jane better). She is also convinced that Ted has the hots for April Winter, which it would be fair to say seems to be true. Ted has definitely had some kind of ephinany after his three weeks away at the business and personal development course.

Also good to see, for the first time in several series, some emphasis on what Hammond Transport actually does with Bill having to deal with some recalcitrant driving who are upset at the way things are going.

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.
