Twists and Red Herrings

A surprisingly complex story to fit into 45 minutes. Father Brown never seems to consider the possibility that the main suspect might be guilty, but almost every other guest becomes a possibility at some point.

There are some contrivances, of course - coincidences and lucky guesses - but the plot is entertaining and the characters are vaguely likeable. Even Inspector Mallory avoids the worst pantomime characteristics in this episode.

The return of an occasional character might stop it being the best introduction to this series, but the writing and acting are good enough to keep it entertaining.
