The Brothers: To Honour and Obey (BBC1 8 Sep 1976, Stanley Lebor)

Published

on

In To Honour and Obey it is the wedding day of Paul Merroney and April Winter (with the reception taking place at the palatial home of the Winter family) and Brian acting as best man. Merroney though is more concerned (as usual) with the fact that Sir Neville is seriously ill which could present an opportunity for the Winter family to take overall control of the bank leaving April’s brother Simon as new head of the bank. He wants Brian to persuade his mother to see Sir Neville (who actually isn’t allowed visitors) to put in a good word for him.

Meanwhile Ted and Jennifer almost don’t make it to the church after Jenny runs into a pair of cyclists who try to make things difficult for them.

The season begins with the glamour of a wedding even if Merroney would rather be having a business chat with Sir Neville (who doesn’t appear in this episode and dies off screen before the second episode starts).

There was also a new title sequence for what turned out to be the final season.

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.
