‘Father Brown’ Season 8 Episode 10 recap: What happened in ‘The Tower of Lost Souls’?

The eighth season of Father Brown concluded in the UK today.

Based on the stories by GK Chesterton, the popular daytime crime drama recently returned with ten brand new episodes.

Set in the Cotswolds during the early 1950s, Father Brown stars Mark Williams (Harry Potter) as the titular clerical sleuth.

Here’s a plot recap for Season 8’s tenth episode, ‘The Tower of Lost Souls’, which aired at 2.15pm on Friday 17th January 2020 on BBC One:

After the body of Reginald Brody is discovered at the bottom of Helmsley Tower, Chief Inspector Valentine (Hugo Speer) returns to Kembleford to investigate.

Suspecting that there is more to his death than suicide, Valentine enlists Father Brown (Mark Williams) to help investigate.

Meanwhile Alistair Helmsley (Gyuri Sarossy) and his wife Emily (Susannah Wise), with gardener George Oakley (Cal Macaninch), are determined to continue organizing a fundraiser for injured veterans at Helmsley House.

Valentine suspects Alistair’s brother William (James Anderson) may have pertinent information and brings him in for questioning, but he refuses to talk.

Later, at the top of Helmsley Tower, William is about to reveal the identity of Reginald’s killer when he is murdered, and Valentine is framed for his death, leading to his arrest.

It is down to Father Brown and Chief Inspector Sullivan (Tom Chambers) to clear Valentine’s name and find the real killer.

Father Brown is available on DVD on Amazon.
