TV Prodigal Daughter, The (ITV 1975, Alastair Sim, Jeremy Brett) Published 3 years ago on August 13, 2016 In The Prodigal Daughter a household of three clerics are struggling to cope with their household duties, all three, led by the elderly Father Perfect are keen to hire a new housekeeper, the last having walked out some weeks before. 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 Episodes13 hours ago House Hunters: Green Acres In Agoura Hills (S153EP2 HGTV Mon 25 Feb 2019) Green Acres In Agoura Hills: A single mother wants to relocate to a home in the city of Agoura Hills,...
