Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

It is a testament to the quality of this period drama series that even when it’s shown in daytime it gets higher viewing figures than many primetime offerings. Of course it is magnificently shot, has glorious rural settings and apparently hasn’t offended GK Chesterton purists in the slightest, while Mark Williams as the cleric with a penchant for solving mysteries has grown into the role that Kenneth More originally played on TV.

In this episode, the Blue Cross, a precious religious artefact, is a tempting trophy for notorious thief Flambeau. Can our clerical sleuth sway him from his path?
