Storyline

Father Brown hosts a multi-racial jazz quartet whose car has broken down but they are interrupted by Emmanuel Jammite, who claims that cocky musician Joseph Sinclair stole his girlfriend, the band's singer Yveline from him back in Haiti. Emmanuel is a voodoo priest and curses Sinclair, whose corpse is later found floating in a swimming pool. Emmanuel swears his innocence but dies trying to flee from the law. Father Brown believes one of the band members is the true murderer and in trying to confront them almost loses his own life. Written by don @ minifie-1

Such Lack of Accuracy of Facts depicted

This has certainly been the worst episode of the show that I have seen. Being a Haitian myself, upon watching this episode, I have been brought to reconsider my view of all the previous episodes seen. Haiti is 100% voodoo??? Definitely no research was done when preparing/scripting this episode. False depiction of Haitians, false reporting of religious affiliation demographics in Haiti, and -from the little that I know of voodoo itself- inaccurate depiction of voodoo practices/practitioners. This episode is full of fictitious portrayals based on an uneducated perceptions of a people or belief. Additionally, as mentioned by another reviewer, the priest's acceptance of voodoo, in the early 1950s and even nowadays, is unheard of.
