Father Brown: The Penitent Man (BBC-1 19 Jan 2017, with John Light)

Published

on

In The Penitent Man, written by Tahsin Guner, Flambeau (John Light) is incarcerated under suspicion of murder. When Father Brown (Mark Williams) visits him he denies killing his cohort Flynn (Callum Dixon) and asks the priest to hear his confession if he’s convicted. Flynn’s wife Peggy (Emma Pallant) later tells Father Brown that she witnessed Flambeau dragging Flynn’s body to the river and throwing it in.

At the presbytery, Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) thinks that Flynn is still alive and has framed Flambeau. Father Brown leaves the surveillance to her and Bunty (Emer Kenny) while he attends Flambeau’s pre-trial hearing. He’s shocked to hear Flambeau plead guilty then be sentenced to death by hanging.

Meanwhile, Bunty and Mrs McCarthy spy Flynn through the window at Peggy’s house and manage to escape after they’re seen. However Father Brown has realised that Flambeau isn’t the victim in all of this, he’s the architect. But what if his plan backfires?

Father Brown: The Penitent Man airs on Thursday 19 January 2017 from 1.45pm-2.30pm on BBC One.

Within These Walls: Deception (ITV 20 Sep 1975, with Susan Littler)

Within These Walls Deception

In Deception Jane Sims is serving a four year sentence for being involved in a armed robbery, she quickly develops a strong friendship with Officer Mary White, Hane is an inveterate liar and quickly has Mary wrapped around her finger.

Mary persuades Charles Radley to give Jane a cushy trustee job in the library (Jane is library officer) and Jane is soon using the opportunity to take advantage, especially when a trio of workmen arrive to fix the pipes in the prison, including the library. One of the men, Billy, happens to know Jane quite well. When Mary leaves Billy and Jane alone together they take advantage of the fact. In the following weeks Mary is shocked to find herself pregnant.

Jane has also arranged an escape attempt after Billy finishes his sentence (he only has a few days left on his sentence) and when Officer White discover what the pair are up to Jane begins blackmailing her to keep quiet.

Things take a dramatic turn when Mary (helped by fellow inmate Rosie Doolan) miscarries the baby she is carrying. In a twist she accuses Charles Radley of being the father (the pair had briefly spent a few minutes alone with her when interviewing her for the librarian position).

Deception is quite the hard hitting episode as it happens, touching on lesbianism, abortion, illicit sex in prison and blackmail, all handled with a suitably delicate touch of course.

A very strong supporting cast sees Susan Littler as the deceitful Jane Sims, Gwen Taylor as the naive Officer White and Stephen Yardley as a builder working at Stone Park.
