Episode 1: The Mask of the Demon

Summary

The priest investigates the murder of a B-movie director when the production of Demon Brides comes to Kembleford. Crime drama, starring Mark Williams.

Review

In 2016 a new series of the period murder mysteries based on GK Chesterton’s character got underway by delving into the world of 1950s gothic horror movies. It’s an especially arch episode with the cast relishing the chance to ham it up to the extreme.

A film unit is in sleepy Kembleford and it’s clear that the entire crew of The Demon Brides hate the director Vivian Wolsey (David Schofield). And with good reason, he’s loathsome. So when he’s murdered, there are at least four suspects. It’s a tricky one for Father Brown (Mark Williams) to solve: “The problem with actors and writers is that they all lie for a living.”
