The Curse of the Aesthetic

Series 8 - Episode 8 The Curse of the Aesthetic



“If there are any more crimes in this place, we’ll have to take up residency,” snaps Inspector Mallory (Jack Deam) as the death rate at Milton Manor in Kembleford reaches Midsomer Murders levels. The suicide of an artist’s beautiful muse, Isabella (Grainne O’Mahony),
is just the start.

At an exhibition dedicated to her life, a bust of Isabella’s likeness is defaced, there’s an attempt to kill one of the guests and finally someone really is murdered. Meanwhile, the handsome young artist, Benjamin Milton (George Webster), is behaving very erratically.

There are countless suspects, although you’ll be hard pressed to solve this convoluted mystery as quickly as dear old Father Brown (Mark Williams) does.


When a tortured artist is murdered, Father Brown must discover who committed the crime before it is too late. Starring Mark Williams and Sorcha Cusack.
