on

UK / BBC One / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast 27 April 1975

Writer: Eric Paice / Production Design: Charles Bond / Director: Vere Lorrimer

Series: The Brothers / Season 5 Episode 4

In the fourth episode of the season Brian is in the throes of a full on breakdown, over lunch with Merroney he loses it in a major way and he finally realises that he needs some serious professional help and agrees to a stay in a psychiatric hospital. Ted and Jenny are enjoying their business trip/weekend away in Switzlerand (with some actual filming done in Switzerland too!) even though the crisis with Brian is causing chaos back at home.

A chance for a bit of a holiday for Ted and Jen then as part of Merroney’s plans to expand even further into Europe with a proposed depot in Switzerland. The trip does allow Jen and Ted to get back together properly and realise that enough is enough and that they should finally get married. It’s a mighty episode actually as the family can’t quite understand what is happening to Brian and the board frantic at what is happening to their managing director.

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.
