Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

There are five more of these superior murder mysteries based on GK Chesterton’s stories about the crime-solving priest to enjoy before Doctors returns.

Here Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) regrets accepting a lift from Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) after her new sports car veers off the road into a tree. The women end up in adjoining beds at the local cottage hospital, much to Lady Felicia’s discomfort.

Meanwhile, at the presbytery, Father Brown (Mark Williams) and Sid’s (Alex Price) newfound freedom is cut short by the arrival of the formidable Mrs Steele (Gillian Bevan) as locum parish secretary and the suspicious news that a routine operation at the hospital has inexplicably gone wrong.
