The Angel of Mercy
3 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A case for modern Sherlock, well his mum at least. Wanda Ventham (mother of Benedict Cumberbatch) guest stars as Bunty's former nanny, not terminally ill in a nursing home. The home is run on strict lines with a stern matron. However some of the terminally ill patients have died in their sleep with a white feather left behind.

Father Brown has doubts that this is the work of the angel of mercy.

Mrs McCarthy not only her lost her friend Freda Knight who was in extreme pain at the nursing home, she feels she might lose her job to the new novice at the presbytery.

There are plenty of red herrings in this one which would keep you guessing.
