    Simply Media are delighted to announce the first DVD release of The Brothers: The Complete Series 5, containing all 13 episodes of this television gem written and created by N. J. Crisp (Dixon of Dock Green) and Gerard Glaister (Dr. Finlay's Casebook), following the successful and popular release of series 1-4 by Simply Media to date.

    Originally shown on BBC One's Sunday night spot in 1975, and proving to be one of the broadcaster’s most popular drama series of the 1970s, this will be the first time fans of the long-running boardroom soap opera will be able to own this series on DVD.

    Series 5 continues the dramatic story of the Hammond family who are left to manage the lucrative Hammond Transport Services, inherited from the family patriarch Robert Hammond, who died while "doing the nasty" with his secretary.

    Tensions run high when shares in the family business are unexpectedly split not just between all three brothers in the family, but also with Robert's secretary Jennifer (Jennifer Wilson - Z Cars). Each shareholder has different ideas on how to run the business.

    Edward (Patrick O'Connell - Fraud Squad) is a no nonsense, well-paid accountant who feels he was most qualified to run the whole business by himself; David (Robin Chadwick - Pride and Prejudice (1967)) is a disinterested "second class honours, first class layabout" arts graduate and playboy with a glamorous girlfriend (Gabrielle Drake); while Brian (Richard Easton - Finding Forrester) is a dull accountancy wizard with a controlling wife. Throw domineering mother Mary (Jean Anderson - The Railway Children) in to the mix and The Brothers delivers a winning formula of power struggles and family feuding that kept fans devoted. 

    Tensions reach fever pitch in Series 5 with the introduction of Kate O'Mara (Doctor Who) as the no-nonsense, tough boss of an airfreight business Jane Maxwell. Her arrival sparks a memorable and entertaining rivalry with the equally ambitious, ruthless city banker Paul "most hated man in Britain" Merroney played by Colin Baker (Doctor Who). Fascinating fact for you: O'Mara and Baker's on-screen rivalry sparked off in The Brothers would continue in another face off, this time on the set of Doctor Who where Baker played the sixth incarnation of The Doctor and O'Mara was cast as evil Time Lady 'The Rani'.

    With gripping boardroom drama, unlike anything you’ll find on television today, family tragedy, financial struggles, secrets and betrayal,  this is a series that should not be missed by any fans of The Brothers. And, it’s a great opportunity for series newcomers to get stuck in to the ways and woes of the alluring Hammond family.
