The Brothers: Loneliness (BBC-1 6 Oct 1974)

Published

on

It’s all about relationships and the lack of them in Loneliness. Brian is determined to start divorce proceedings against Ann and moves into David and Jill’s old flat (they bring forward the date to move into their new place to help him out) and Ann gets more than a shock when she visits Nicholas Fox only to find his ex-wife there. It turns out though that she is also his agent and that he is currently going through something of a fertile period, he is not at home but has left Ann a portrait he has done of her (this is clearly a risque picture judging by her reaction and that of Brian although we don’t actually see it).

Meanwhile new board member Martin Farrell is getting to know Jennifer a little bit and takes her out to dinner much to the consternation of Ted. In fact the relationship between Ted and Jen is completely stalled following Mary’s heart attack. At this point it looks like they will never actually get together. Bill Riley isn’t left out either as he is having trouble with the drivers now that he has become a member of the board too.

Another solid episode from Mr Pennington although he does have lots of meaty stuff to work with.

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.
