Seemingly distracted and a bit dotty, the kindly priest confounds criminals with his keen observations and inescapable logic. Set in the 1920s, seen on Mystery! in the 1980s, this classic British series stars Kenneth More as the good father, with Dennis Burgess as thief-turned private-investigator Hercule Flambeau. Complete collection includes all 13 episodes. 11 1/2 hrs, 4 DVDs.
