Storyline

Farmer John Tatton and his son Alfred do not get on, John accusing the boy of being a useless drunk like his late mother. Alfred confronts the family doctor Adam Crawford, taunting him for having a much younger wife Oona, who has just confided in Mrs McCarthy that she is pregnant. Alfred is found dead, mangled in farm machinery and soon afterwards anonymous letters appear, accusing Dr Crawford of the crime as Oona was supposedly having an affair with the dead man - something she denies. Dr Crawford confesses to the murder of Alfred but Father Brown knows better and seeks out the truth. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

Oona Crawford wears her hair in a teased style. But teased hair was not seen until the 1980s. Before that, long hair was always brushed out smooth and shiny. In the 1950s, any woman would have been mortified to be seen with teased hair; it would have been considered unkempt and ratty-looking. See more »

Quotes

Inspector Sullivan: Perhaps you should think about leaving things to the professionals from now on.
Father Brown: Never forget that professionals built the Titanic but an amateur built the Ark.
