The Brothers: A Very Short Honeymoon (BBC-1 18 May 1975)

Published

on

In A Very Short Honeymoon Ted is taking Jennifer on Honeymoon to Mombassa but it seems Jennifer is keener on finding a new house and thinking about starting a family. Ted and the rest of the board get confirmation from Merroney that Brian has sold his shares to the bank, which means, for the first time, the Hammond’s own less than fifty percent of the company. Mary also invites Jennifer round for what seems to be a cosy chat but Mary makes it plain that she still hasn’t forgiven her for having a long running affair with her husband and Ted’s father.

An episode pretty much centred around Ted and Jen and the fact that Mary Hammond will never get over her feelings towards Jennifer. David quite likes Merroney’s secretary Clare Miller and Merroney as part of his devious ways encourages her to be nice to David despite the fact that Merroney knows she is blindly in love with him. jane Maxwell also attends her first board meeting and confides to Don later that she might have made a mistake joining forces with Hammonds.

There is mention of Ann in a newspaper article that says she is involved with a wealthy race horse owner and maybe contemplating remarriage.

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.
