Storyline

Upset that Amanda wants him to marry her to Guy Sidney hits the bottle but recovers in time to welcome new curate Leonard. He visits elderly Daisy Livingstone, who tells him that she thinks Arthur Evans, her daughter Isabel's boyfriend, is trying to kill her and later she does die but seemingly of natural causes and is cremated before a post mortem can take place. Daisy's sister Gladys - to whom she left everything - tells Sidney Daisy wanted to be buried and then Gladys also dies and Geordie arrests Arthur, who stands to gain from the deaths, though he protests his innocence. Indeed the true killer turns out to be motivated less by greed than by misplaced altruism. Written by don @ minifie-1

Sidney reminds me of Clergy I knew in the US Episcopal church. I am talking a lifetime of 75 years. They were handsome, well educated, enjoyed sports. They had been military, liked to drink and loved women, not men. They liked to hunt. They loved their dogs.

The setting in 1953 makes it all the more believable for me. The situations he finds remind me of several wonderful Rectors I have known. They have died. Their type do not come along now in the Church. We now get women Clergy. We now get gay men. We get lesbian and gay bishops.

Please keep this series coming.
