Storyline

Father Frank Dowling, a fine Catholic parish priest in Chicago, drives housekeeper Marie to despair by his habit of being late for dinner as he and his assistant (streetwise nun Stephanie 'Steve' Oskowski) solve numerous neighborhood crimes, usually involving at least one murder. They generally outsmart the police as well as the criminals. The live-in priest Father Philip Prestwick, whose priority is his own ecclesiastical career prospects, takes a very dim view of their crime fighting and on Sister Steve even being there.

The best in its genre
24 February 2004 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

Father Dowling Mysteries is a slice of superb sleuth TV currently delivered for your enjoyment every weekday afternoon on British TV. At around 2 o clock you will find yourself on the edge of your seat as the gravel voiced Priest (the superb Tom Bosley) and delectable sidekick Nun (the babelicious Tracy Nelson) find themselves solving crimes in the manner of Jessica Fletcher or Quincy.

This fast-paced drama/comedy knocks the competition into a cocked hat - with uniformly excellent performances all round and brilliantly thought-out plots you realise right from the start that for the next hour you're gonna be hooked. So get the teas on, relax into a comfy chair and get ready to ogle the sexiest nun in the business - you'll never go back to Miss Marple once you've seen this. Pure class.
