Father Brown meets Death in Paradise as Sara Martins is the guest star as Flambeau's widow!

Father Brown reads in the newspaper that Flambeau was killed over Christmas in Italy. His widow Lisandra then contacts Father Brown about a key that Flambeau might had sent him.

At the same time Gloucester Cathedral are due to receive the Iron Crown of Lombardy, made from a nail from the Crucifixion of Jesus.

Father Brown must decide if this is all a rouse to steal the Iron Crown.

Flambeau episodes are always special as their is always great interplay between him and Father Brown as well as plenty of green screen. This episode has lots of twists and turns but the central story of a valuable religious artifact doing a tour of Britain that is at risk of being stolen by Flambeau has been done before.


At the time of writing this, The Two Deaths of Hercule Flambeau sits at the top of the rankings, as the best episode to date of the show. It is very good, but not deserving of sitting at the top of the pile, that accolade surely belongs to the face of the enemy. I love it when John Light makes his annual appearance as Flambeau, as always he's tremendous, he always elevates an episode. He is joined by the much missed star from Death in Paradise Sara Martins, who is just fabulous, a mega talented actress, who adds a huge deal of glamour. She is fantastic in this, and combines well with John Light, the pair share some great scenes.

The acting is spot on, the production values, costumes etc, are great, the sets are particularly good. I knocked a few points off for the story itself, it was too similar to the Mystery of the Rosary, another Flambeau story, with a similar plot.

It's good, very good, but there are definitely better episodes. I already cannot wait for Series 7.



Flambeau's character very engaging. I loved the surprises. I shall look out for Kit Lambert's stories now. This has been the best Father Brown programme of this winter!. I do look forward to watching them on these dull cold winter afternoons, but have enjoyed this story more than those with over sophisticated characters
