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

Published

on

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.

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.
