The Hand of Lucia

Season 5, Episode 5

As notorious author Lucia Morrell (Hetty Baynes) shouts at some removal men outside her new house, a vase is dropped on her head from high above... Bunty is shocked to hear about the attack - Lucia said in an interview she would reveal who Lulu, her sadistic former lover, was based upon in her next novel so perhaps someone was trying to protect their identity? Father Brown (Mark Williams) studies a list of 20 possible options and deduces that Lulu is most likely Lady Ursula. Meanwhile Lucia visits Lady Ursula (Carol Royle) and asks for money as she can't get a publishing deal. Lucia threatens to tell her son James (Kris Olsen) about their sordid past but Lady Ursula threatens her - she knows what she's capable of. Later when Father Brown and Bunty arrive at Lucia's they learn that not only has she been murdered, but that her hand has been chopped off...
