Storyline

Airman Ned LeBroc returns after eight years away, allegedly as a spy, only to discover his wife Meg, assuming he was dead, is marrying his brother Geoffrey. Daughter Millie is pleased to see him, unlike his wing commander father, who regards him as a deserter and coward. When Ned is shot dead Mallory arrests Meg but a card found in Ned's possession leads Father Brown to an unusual club which reveals Ned's secret life and the circumstances of his death.

Complete disaster, sorry
6 June 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An RAF Wing Commander would not keep a loaded gun in the house, or even keep the ammunition in the same place as the guns. Or the bolts, for those guns that had bolts. Three separate locations. Gunmanship 101. And I do expect people writing British crime drama to know that you don't 'hire' barristers: you retain solicitors, who retain barristers. This improbable episode also has the victim returning from 8 years 'away' doing XXX to spoil his wife's wedding, only to resume doing XXX the very same night, and then the police and everybody else apparently conniving at letting the actual murder get off without trial. The wedding scenes, two of them, have Fr Brown behaving more like a Californian marriage celebrant than a Catholic priest, and reciting not one but twice a text unknown to the Catholic marriage service. It is also a continuing mystery how the Catholic Church managed to retain a Gothic parish church during the Reformation.

Have the makers considering using what Chesterton actually wrote?
