The Brothers: Life Goes On (BBC-1 6 Apr 1975)

Published

on

In Life Goes On the opening episode of the fifth season Brian is in court finalising the details of his divorce from Ann being granted a decree nisi. He’s struggling to cope though with both the single life and his new role as Managing Director. Martin Farrell has gone to Switzerland at the behest of Paul Merroney who is harbouring plans to take over as Chairman of Hammonds.

The episode ends on the bombshell news that Jill is dead!

So Gabrielle Drake’s Jill is no more, with Drake having left the show at short notice inbetween seasons (there was a four month gap between the end of season four and the start of season five) the production team didn’t mess about and simply killed her off. Not that you’d know it from David’s behaviour throughout the episode, other than a quick glance at a photo of Jill at his mothers place and the fact that Brian is staying with David. Also gone is the excellent Murray Hayne as Martin Farrell and Ann Hammond is also off the scene with the divorce now final. Ann and the children have gone off to stay with her parents in the country.

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.
