The Brothers: Perchance To Dream (BBC-1 31 Mar 1974)

Published

on

In Perchance To Dream Ann’s flight to Brussels is cancelled and despite managing to get in touch with her lover’s hotel she discovers that he is out but that is “secretary” is in his room. Meanwhile Edward and Jennifer are contemplating going on holiday together and Barbara reveals that she is emigrating to Canada with Johnny.

A powerful performance from Hilary Tindall as Ann’s semi-breakdown reaches crisis point and leads her to take an over dose of sleeping pills, Barbara is forever dropping bombshells on her mother and this time is no exception albeit Canada seems a little excessive. Johnny has been somewhat conspicuous by his absence too, it’s almost like the producers couldn’t come up with a strong enough plot line for Barbara so shipping her off to Canada was a good way out. Also Ann pays a stressful visit to her daughter Carol at boarding school only to find that she is played by a completely different actress and also seems to be younger now!

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.
