An­other day, an­other dilemma for world­weary Fa­ther Michael

drama / 9.00pm / BBC1

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Fa­ther Peter per­fectly sums up his pal Fa­ther Michael’s life when he says: ‘It’s like buses, you can wait all your life for a de­cent dilemma to come along and then three ar­rive at the one time.’ This comes af­ter poor Michael, surely the world’s most put-upon priest, finds him­self fac­ing yet an­other tough choice when he wit­nesses an al­ter­ca­tion be­tween stern Daniel Martin (Har­lots’ Danny Sa­pani), brother of be­reaved mum Helen, and Helen’s gay neigh­bour Karl Mckenna (scene-steal­ing Ver­sailles star Ned Den­nehy). Al­though Michael is be­ing en­cour­aged to make a state­ment to the po­lice, he feels sorry for trou­bled Karl but is keen to spare Helen more agony. So can he per­suade the two equally stub­born men to rec­on­cile?

Helen is key to the drama this week
