When young Christine walks into their lives she very quickly makes an impression on all their lives and in the shape of the increasingly bitter Father Vernon not in a good way. Father Daley is faced with a crisis of faith when he begins to realise that the world outside the church has its attractions. Fabulously cast this very poignant drama is a great treat, Alastair Sim, in one of his last roles, is just gorgeous here, with a real twinkle in his eye. There is also a small role for a young Karl Howman as a teenager deciding if the church is really for him. production details UK / ITV – Anglia / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast 5 January 1975 @ 8.30pm Writer: David Turner / Script Editor: John Rosenberg / Production Design: Barry Learoyd / Producer: John Jacobs / Director: Alastair Reid cast ALASTAIR SIM as Father Perfect JEREMY BRETT as Father Daley CAROLYN SEYMOUR as Christine CHARLES KAY as Father Vernon JAMES BERWICK as Paul Ryan TIFFANY KINNEY as Mary KARL HOWMAN as Patrick Alastair ReidAlastair SimAngliaBarry LearoydCarolyn SeymourCharles KayDavid TurnerDramaITVJeremy BrettJohn RosenbrgKarl HowmanTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV2 hours ago Coming of Age (CBS 1988, Paul Dooley, Phyllis Newman) Sitcom.
