Lady Felicia's driving lands her and Mrs McCarthy in the cottage hospital, where elderly Mrs Garrity dies during a routine operation carried out by Sir Malcolm Braithwaite and womanizing Dr Tony Fairfax. A nurse who voiced her suspicions of foul play is murdered and incompetent Inspector Mallory believes she was killed by Fairfax, who once worked with her. Father Brown however links a seemingly random comment made by Mrs Garrity to a secret one of the staff is keeping but he must act fast as Mrs McCarthy's sleuthing has put her in danger.

Suspicious deaths in hospital.
27 June 2016 | by (San Diego, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

I am absolutely sick and tired of Inspector Mallory. This incompetent boob drags down every scene in which he appears. Mine cannot be the only observation of this sort. Mystery should be well above this sort of sophomoric scripting. I must say that Father Brown is enormously inconsistent in this regard. His predecessor in this role was quite competent, all the while being a worthy adversary for Father Brown. Mr. Mallory's histrionics bring the teleplay's ratings down at least two full points. The gentleman may well be a competent actor, but with all of the mugging, the viewer might never be aware. The fault must be shared equally among the producer, director, scriptwriter, and at least partly the actor in question. Mr. Williams is indeed competent in the role, the others are marginally effective, but adequate. I do expect more of the BBC, even though I have not paid a license fee in some time. Thank you.
