Father Brown

2:10pm Thursday 17 January on BBC ONE

Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) is horrified to find an injured man in his late 30s (Jonathan Sidgwick) stuck in a tree on her estate, wearing nothing but his underwear.

Meanwhile, at Kembleford station, Father Brown (Mark Williams) and Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) greet their German visitor Father Franc (Rod Hallett) as Sid, (Alex Price) rag and bone man Christy (Steffan Rhodri) and local outcast Annie (Katherine Dow Blyton) also depart the train.

Father Brown sees the man being rescued from the tree, which is under a viaduct, and surmises that he was pushed from a train carriage. Inspector Valentine (Hugo Speer) investigates and Sid implicates Annie, who was seen leaving first class. However, Christy contradicts this, giving Annie an alibi which puts Sid himself in the frame. When Sid is caught intimidating Christy, Father Brown is forced to face the facts – could Sid be guilty this time?
