Fa­ther Brown

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television - Lyn­dall Crisp

Satur­day, 7.30pm, ABC1 Based on a char­ac­ter de­vised by author GK Ch­ester­ton, Fa­ther Brown (Mark Wil­liams — Harry Pot­ter, Doc­tor Who) is a be­nign parish priest in a bu­colic English vil­lage who spends a dis­pro­por­tion­ate amount of time solv­ing crimes rather than tend­ing his flock. Gen­tle sto­ries with a touch of hu­mour and al­ways a twist, the se­ries is worth watch­ing for the beau­ti­ful scenery alone. In this episode, The Wrong Shape, Fa­ther Brown is off to a po­etry recital by a lo­cal writer, Leonard Quin­ton (Robert Ca­vanah), who’s sub­se­quently found hang­ing in the con­ser­va­tory. It looks like sui­cide, there’s a note, but our su­per­sleuth is trou­bled by the fact Leonard was left-handed and the note and the rope’s knot could only be the work of a right-handed per­son. Who’s to blame? The trou­bled wife, the In­dian gar­dener, the mistress, the an­gry so­lic­i­tor? Therein lies the twist.
