Sidney's relationship with Amanda draws a veiled warning from the new arch-deacon - in addition to threatening phone calls. Geordie calls him in when philanthropic Dr Atwell is murdered and his body dumped in the church. The doctor appeared to anticipate his death and had made a will, the beneficiary being Ivy Franklin, though she pre-deceased him. Both had worked at a grim psychiatric hospital and Geordie believes they were murdered in revenge for the death of one of its patients - a girl called Bonnie. Sidney was innocently involved when he officiated at Ivy's funeral and is now a potential target for the killer - the voice at the end of the phone. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 3.1
7 July 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Sidney seems to have settled down with a life with Amanda and her baby. The new Archdeacon is keeping a close watch though. Also Amanda's ex husband wants to have contact with his child and she fears he might want custody.

Sidney though is being plagued with anonymous phone calls and a dead crow was found in the house.

The incident seems to be linked with the body of a dead doctor found in the church together with a dead crow. The doctor was well respected, he had worked in a psychiatric hospital, fed the homeless but Geordie and Sidney discover that doctor seems to have anticipated his death somewhat. They also find that the death of another person who worked at the hospital a few months earlier might had also been foul play.

A good opener but nothing too remarkable. It is rather easy to conclude that the psychiatric hospital was an horrid place and had skeletons to hide. The soap opera elements concerning both Geordie and Sidney was underwhelming.
