The following morning Lee is poisoned with hemlock. His friend George, an ex-policeman, is arrested and released.

The Daughter of Autolycus (#140H) Duration: 59:55 STEREO TVPG

Father Brown knows the Pope's coronation gift to the Queen of a priceless cross is too tempting to Flambeau and Brown convinces the Bishop to let him guard it. Flambeau arrives on Brown's doorstep seeking his help to steal the cross in order to save the life of his daughter whom he has never met, and who has been kidnapped by Flambeau's criminal partner he once left for dead. Before they can steal the cross it goes missing from the Bishop's Palace. Brown has underestimated Papal politics, Flambeau's daughter, and the consciences of men.

The Rod of Asclepius (#141H) Duration: 44:40 STEREO TVPG

Lady Felicia's reckless driving lands her and Mrs McCarthy in adjoining hospital beds. A new admittance to the ward dies the following morning on the operating table. A nurse claims it is murder and is found dead the same afternoon, forcing Inspector Mallory to do more than his initial cursory investigation. Father Brown follows a different line of inquiry and Lady Felicia and Mrs. McCarthy's snooping put the latter in danger on the same operating table.
