Goofs

De Sacramento Extremae Unctionis (Last Anointing) is not given to a person already dead, and it is done on five parts of the body: eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and palms of the hands (unless the person is a priest, then the backs of the hands). Anointing the feet also, is optional, but there was no reason to anoint the thighs since he still had feet. See more »

Quotes

Mrs McCarthy: Who would choose to hang mid-air in a glorified tin can?
Lady Felicia: Amy Johnson made it look so glamorous.
Mrs McCarthy: Yes, and then she died.

The Missing Man
16 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode is rather way out and offbeat. It really does not work because of the weirdness and how far fetched the central conceit is.

Airman Ned LeBroc was presumed dead for eight years but appears at church just in time to stop his wife getting married to his brother. His young daughter Millie is pleased to see him but the rest of the family are not. Ned implies he was away working as a spy, his father a proud military man viewed him as a coward. Later that night Ned is found shot dead and his wife is arrested for murder.

Father Brown's investigations takes him to a club for homosexuals and transvestites. Maybe Ned was leading an alternative lifestyle and returned to stop his wife getting married only to go back to that lifestyle later that evening. He should had stayed home and watched TV.
