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

Sidney grapples with a mystery and his love for Amanda
26 June 2017 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

The first shot in this episode takes place in a dance hall where Sidney, out of his clergyman attire, is dancing up a storm and making out with Amanda. But he really doesn't have the freedom once he's back to being a vicar, and he receives a warning from the new archdeacon. In the midst of this, the baby's father wants to see her, upsetting Amanda.

Geordie calls him in about the murder of a Dr. Atwell, and it appears he and his beneficiary, also deceased, worked in the same psychiatric hospital. Sidney is getting mysterious phone calls; he thinks the murders have to do with the goings-on at the hospital and the treatment of one patient. On the police front, Geordie gives in to temptation.

The writers of this series are wonderful - this is an intriguing story told with pathos and humor. James Norton and Robson Green have fabulous chemistry. All the characters are beautifully defined.

Loving this season!
