Father Brown

2:10pm Wednesday 16 January on BBC ONE

Umesh Varma, (Ramon Tikaram) an Indian man in white robes, bursts into a study, waking Leonard Quinton (Robert Cavanah) to tell him he’s going to die today…

Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) conveys an invite to Father Brown (Mark Williams) to a poetry recital at the Quinton’s. Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) joins them and on arrival mistakes Violet (Jennie Jacques) for Leonard’s wife. A contemptuous Mr Harris (Simon Thorp) is ashamed to say that she is Leonard’s mistress.

Leonard asks a concerned Father Brown to look after his wife, should anything happen to him. After some bemusing poetry, Leonard’s haunted wife Martha (Ruth Gemmell) runs from the room then suggests that Mr Harris takes the guests out for a stroll in the garden while Leonard takes a nap. However, as they return, Lady Felicia screams – Leonard’s body is hanging in the conservatory…
