Storyline

Ex-colonel Gerard is poisoned after arguing with his nephew Edward. Edward is a former POW from Korea and the colonel claims he has been brain-washed but Edward sticks to his story that Gerard killed his father in order to marry his widow Ada. None of the household - including Ada's brother Rupert and his adopted daughter Jia-Li - seem upset at the colonel's death and each had a motive for murder. Then Father Brown is poisoned - hopefully he can recover in time to unmask the killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Tacky not good people with morals
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a man who is rich and mean.

He is murdered in his bed. He does not get along with his step son and others. Him and his wife also have a oriental adopted daughter.

Later when Father Brown goes to question one of the men he is in the closet with a maid feeling her breast. I found this very offensive that they would put a scene like this in a religious series.The man that was murdered also made sexual advances toward his adopted daughter.

Anyway religion is not good in these series. Lady Felicia is always sleeping with someone, and made comments to Father Brown.

Father Brown makes the Sign of the Cross is sloppy manner and when asked to pray he prays in Latin which no one understand and is rarely used.

So I did not like this episode at all.
