The Brothers: The Mole (BBC-1 7 Mar 1976, Clive Swift)

Published

on

In The Mole the tender needs to be completed within a week, the board think they have Trevelyan on side but unbeknownst to them he is playing them off against another of the bidders – Matthews. Trevelyan is feeding Hammond’s false information on what needs to go in the tender but it soon becomes obvious what is going on and Hammonds decides to play Matthews at their own game.

Another strong episode from the always excellent Paice, great to see the board all pulling together and getting the better of Trevelyan (played by the dependable Clive Swift) even though there is the ultimate double bluff at the end with Trevelyan also working with a third company who end up winning the tender! Quite interesting too to see Brian developing an interest in Jane Maxwell, she is another strong female, very much in the mould of ex-wife Ann!

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.
