Trivia

Jago says he is between Scilla and Charybdis, meaning that he is between a rock and a hard place. In fact these two were mythical sea monsters mentioned by Homer in his Odyssey. See more »

Goofs

It is pointed out on more than one occasion that the daughter of the family is marrying a marquis. Several people comment that she will be a duchess. The wife of a marquis is a marchioness, not a duchess. And then towards the end there is a brief reference to the father of the marquis which sheds light on everything. The father being still alive, and the son being a marquis (not in his own right, but using one of his father's subsidiary titles as an honorary title) it is the father who is the duke, a title which the marquis will one day inherit.

The Pride of the Prydes
11 May 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Father Brown investigates a mad bunch of aristocrats, the Prydes who have been cursed through the generations. It mus be all the inbreeding.

Impoverished Sir St John Pryde plans to sell off his land, this upsets some of his tenants including radical Alan Archer who is also the son of St John's butler.

St John's daughter might be getting married to a very wealthy man which is his only saving grace. However she is carrying on with Alan Archer.

On the day Pryde castle is opened to the public, a distant cousin Audrey Diggle is shot by a crossbow. She was researching ancestral history and discovered that the Prydes might not be true heirs to their title.

What should had been an interesting mystery and a rather daring way to murder someone was let down by some clunky writing and stereotypical characterization.
