The Brothers: Investigations (BBC-1 15 Sep 1974)

Published

on

Whilst much of the emphasis of Investigations is about the plans to make Hammond public and the exploratory investigations by Martin Farrell as to the viability of such an idea the title also refers to Brian discovering (thanks to what he thinks is an over priced phone bill) that Ann has been having an affair with Nicholas Fox. He doesn’t confront Ann or Nicholas with the knowledge though but makes it plain to Fox that his company will not be getting a continuation of their advertising contract once it runs out. Meanwhile Mary Hammond is at last allowed out of hospital and Gwen Riley has agreed to come in every day and look after her, husband Bill also has a lot on his mind having been asked by Ted to join the Hammond’s board.

Top notch stuff and Murray Hayne as banker Martin Farrell is great, quite world weary and not a hundred percent convinced that he wants to tie himself to Hammonds. Incidentally the lovely Jill has been much referred to so far in the three episodes of this fourth season but is becoming quite conspicuous by her abscence.

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.
