Did You Know?


The condition that Lady Galloway and her daughter Lucia are suffering from which is hereditary, causes them to have difficulty reading, muddle left with right and write letters and numbers the wrong way round, is never named. However, it is almost certainly dyslexia, which produces all of these effects. See more »


Prof. Galloway claims to have been "reading Derrida" when he was his daughter's age. Since this series is set in the early 1950s, and Derrida was born in 1930, this would have been impossible. See more »

A clever, sad and intriguing mystery.
17 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wealthy Lady Margaret Galloway is plagued by nightmares, she was responsible for running over Daniel Walsh's father, when he dies he vows to take revenge on her. Walsh tells Father Brown he believed she intentionally ran him down, and that it was no accident. The local Charity Nest hunt is organised by Lady Margaret, and later she discovers guest and relative Captain Clarence Clifton, he'd been murdered. Initial theories are that Clifton wasn't the intended victim, that the killer could have been after Professor Galloway, who'd been wearing the same costume. Lady Felicia had walked past the killer who wore a raven's face. Later Professor Galloway and Lady Margaret spy an intruder in the grounds and send for help, Father Brown goes to speak to her, and finds her dead.

A super stylish episode, which boasts lots of glitz and glamour, a very visually appealing episode, Lucia gets to wear some super stylish clothes. The scenes at the Charity Hunt look great too.

Quite a bloodthirsty episode, a death and two murders in two days, it's more like a mini episode of Midsomer Murders. A great storyline, has a more mature feel then some of the previous episodes.

Well acted, particularly good from Stella Gonet (Lady Margaret) and Flora Spencer-Longhurst (daughter Lucia.) Stephen Boxer largely steals the show.

One of the best in the opening series. 8/10
