The Brothers: The Distaff Side (BBC1 17 Oct 1976, Philip Jackson)

Published

on

In The Distaff Side Paul’s mother is having to stay with the Riley’s with Paul abroad and April at her parents and Merroney is more than a little put out when he returns home.

Meanwhile he has a major new plan to put to the board about expansion into the middle east, something which could change the whole direction the company is headed in.

Mary has recovered from her bout of flu and goes to stay with an old friend for a week giving Brian the opportunity to invite Jane to stay over.

A good strong mid season episode, the real highlight is the performance by Norah Fulton as Paul’s mum, she understands him completely and isn’t at all put out that he didn’t attend his father’s funeral.

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.
