The Smallest of Things

Series 5 - Episode 7 The Smallest of Things

Today 1pm - 2pm Alibi


“What sick mind comes up with something like this?” asks an offended Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) as she and Father Brown (Mark Williams) view the dioramas of murder scenes at a police exhibition. Wilbur Lesser (David Yelland), whose daughter Agnes (Mariah Gale) creates them, reproves her, saying they are a valuable teaching tool in the art of crime detection.

He’s less than happy, though, when Agnes shows everyone a diorama depicting the death of her own mother, who fell down the stairs. But as everyone files away, DCI Webb (Colin Mace), who was the original investigating officer on that case, spots something and removes it...


Past and present collide when the sleuth investigates the macabre world of doll's house crime scenes. Crime drama based on the stories by GK Chesterton, starring Mark Williams.
