Fraud Squad: Brother Simple (ITV 27 May 1969, with Elvi Hale)

Published

on

In Brother Simple Vicky goes undercover at a religious fellowship/cult when a Mr Butcher, approaches the Squad after his wife sells everything and joins the fellowship.

Mr Butcher is convinced that the head of the Fellowship, Brother Simple, has deliberately defrauded he and his wife after she sells all their valuables to give to the fellowship.

After an initial investigation Gamble discovers that all if the 30 people that make up the “brethren” came from wealthy backgrounds and gave a lot of money to the Fellowship. Vicky, though, seems to have no doubt about the sincerity of Brother Simple.

Gamble investigates further, having managed to get surreptitious fingerprints from a glass handled by Brother Simple, and discovers that he has a criminal record for fraud. He discovers that most of the money that is donated disappears into a Swiss bank account.

Unfortunately for Gamble there doesn’t seem to be any concrete proof that will allow him to bring Brother Simple in, so he decides on another tactic.

An entertaining episode with a most unlikely religious sect at the heart of the story.
