The Brothers: The Judas Sheep (BBC-1 15 Jun 1975, Mike Pratt)

Published

on

In The Judas Sheep Jenny and Ted begin the initial steps towards adopting a child but find it not as straight forward as they anticipated. Ted is still keeping his distance from Mary and she is not too happy to learn of their adoption plans via the gossipy Gwen Riley. Mary manages to spoil things with the adoption agency by letting slip the unusual circumstances of the couple’s coming together but, when all hope seems lost on the adoption front, Mary actually manages to save the day with a quiet word to the family doctor who knows of a young mother who is desperate to give her child up for adoption.

Meanwhile with Merroney in the Lebenon on business the relationship between Clare Miller and David steps up a notch. The job evaluation scheme is almost complete but it promises to spell some major trouble for Hammonds especially if union man Jack Cornish gets his way.

A chance for Jennifer to shine in this episode with the melodramatics of the adoption falling through and the surprise from Doctor Ivan at the end. Both Gwen Riley and Mary Hammond prove unable to stop themselves from their gossipy and interfering ways. Luckily though for once there is a positve outcome for Ted and Jen. Carole Mowlam as Clare Miller is proving to be excellent too, a wry smile on the lips as she never quite takes anything too seriously.

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.
