It is the absolute duty of a priest not to reveal anything that is disclosed in the confessional. So it puts Father Brown into a difficult position when an unknown penitent announces that Bishop Talbot is going to be shot dead at 11am the next day. It sends him - not in the slightest bit reluctantly - into the world of theatrical luvvies, where it turns out he's not a bad actor himself.

However, Inspector Sullivan is less adept at putting on a show. He simply can't hide how smug he feels that he's one step ahead of the sleuthing padre - except that he's not, of course. Aden Gillett is among the guest stars.


The priest finds himself in a seemingly impossible situation when he is told during a confession that Bishop Talbot will be assassinated tomorrow. Fifties-set crime drama based on the stories by GK Chesterton, starring Mark Williams.
