Episode 13: The Paradise of Thieves

Summary

When a man is found dead inside a locked bank vault, Father Brown must solve the mystery to save an innocent man from paying the ultimate price. Fifties-set crime drama based on the stories by GK Chesterton, starring Mark Williams as a Roman Catholic priest who attempts to solve various misdemeanours.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

“I think we have been looking at this the wrong way,” says Father Brown as he investigates yet another Jonathan Creek-style mystery where a dead body is found in a locked room. The discovery of the badly battered corpse is made when the priest and Mrs McCarthy are caught up in a bank hold-up where, curiously, the masked robbers ask him to accompany them to the vault.

Initially it looks as though the bank manager (played by Silent Witness’s William Gaminara) has been fiddling the books and, for some reason, committed murder. At least that’s what Inspector Sullivan reckons. But in any case how did the murderer get out of the locked vault?
