| Not good enough to call plagiarism
This would be simply a standard BBC anti-Catholic series if it did not defile the mystery writer who showed the way after Holmes. I should think someone would sue for fraud. If you want to enjoy this great mystery story, leave the Beeb behind and read the book. The actual story is well-written with a very clever plot and worth reading. As to another sappy, perjorative anti-Papist series, who needs yet another?
