The Brothers: Series Two
November 9th 2015 | Simply Media | DVD
Following the hugely successful release of classic BBC family saga The Brothers: Series One, Simply Media is delighted to announce The Brothers: The Complete Series Two 1973, which comes to UK DVD for the first time on 9 November 2015.
Robert Hammond has just died. Beloved father, husband and chairman of a lucrative trucking
company, his heart failed him whilst ‘doing the nasty’ with his secretary. Preparing to take over the family business, eldest son Edward (Patrick O’Connell - "Fraud Squad") is delivered a shock when the funeral reveals that Robert has split his fortune four ways - to all three brothers and his secretary Jennifer (Jennifer Wilson - "Z Cars").
Edward, a gruff and no nonsense chip-off-the-old-block must now juggle working with his brothers and father’s mistress, something that is easier said than done. Brian (Richard Easton - "Finding Forrester") is an accountancy wizard with a domineering wife whilst, David (Robin Chadwick - "Waugh On Crime") is a ‘second class honours, first class layabout’ arts graduate. If that wasn’t enough Jennifer has revealed the biggest secret of all – her and Robert’s love child.
With their interfering mother (Mary Anderson) driving a wedge between the increasingly flirty
Edward and Jennifer, alongside strike action and continuous debt threatening the firm, can these
unlikely bedfellows pull together to save the business and secure a profit?
Written and created by N.J. Crisp ("Dixon of Dock Green") and Gerard Glaister ("Dr Finlay’s Casebook"), and starring Jean Anderson ("The Railway Children"), this long running TV gem has been unavailable since its broadcast in 1973 and is now released as a bumper four disc set.
