1 9 7 5 – 1 9 7 6 (UK)
13 x 30 minute episodes

My Brother’s Keeper took a humorous look at the controversial subject of law and order, with George Layton as naive and ambitious young policeman Brian Booth and Jonathan Lynn as his wastrel twin, Pete – a militant firebrand student, forever girl-chasing, getting drunk and going on (or organising) protests against whatever upset him that week.

Layton and Lynn both starred in and wrote this short-lived Granada sitcom, which was set in the fictional Northern town of West Hockley.
