Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lady Felicia introduces Father Brown to the Francis family, some posh friends with troubles of “a delicate nature”. Jacob Francis is a young quantum physicist who has apparently created a time machine. Jolly handy for predicting the winner of the 12.05 at Newbury, but what Jacob really wants is to travel back in time to discover how his biologist father died a year earlier. He believes it was murder. Everyone else in the family thinks it was suicide and that Jacob is mad.

Father Brown’s investigations stray into Jonathan Creek territory when another suspicious death occurs in the top-floor laboratory – where the doors are locked from the inside.
