Storyline

Aircraft tycoon Robert Twyman is in receipt of notes stating that if he does not 'confess' his spoiled son Calvin will be killed; and indeed the boy is strangled. Twyman's butler, Wallace's strange behavior makes him suspect; but Robert believes the culprit is journalist Rosie Everton, seeking a meaty story. When Rosie is also murdered, Mallory arrests Robert; but Father Brown believes that visiting psychologist Mordaunt Jackson holds the key to solving the murders. Written by don @ minifie-1

Murder in A Minor.
12 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Mrs McCarthy is busy putting together a talent contest, what could possibly go wrong? Surely not murder..

I really enjoyed this strong episode, such a clever mystery, with some great character play. Paul Brown is excellent as Morduant Jackson, an actor I always look on as wet Malcolm from Watching, he's great in this. The scenes with Mrs McCarthy and Lady Felicia on stage may be a little corny, but are terribly sweet, the pair have truly developed into a great double act. The scene where Doctor Jackson takes away Lady Felicia's spirit is well played out, a far cry from his time on Watching.

The outcome was definitely unexpected, but cleverly devised, it does require a bit of a stretch of the imagination, but it's clever nonetheless. It's an enjoyable episode. 8/10
