"The Lost Honour Of Christopher Jefferies, a sensitive portrayal of a media witch-hunt"
Filipa Jodelka, The Guardian, 5 December 2014
This drama tells the real-life story of retired schoolteacher Christopher Jefferies who was initially questioned by police as a suspect in the murder of Jo Yeates who rented a flat from him. He was vilified by the press, partly on account of his eccentric appearance and long flowing hair, even after he had been released on bail by the police.
Series inspired by the stories of GK Chesterton; a Catholic priest has a knack for solving mysteries in his English village.
Richard played Sir St John Pryde in the 3rd episod
SIR ST JOHN PRYDE (50) Hawk faced. 14th Baron Pryde. Latest in an illustrious lineage. Son of Sir Anthony Pryde (deceased) and Lavinia, Lady Pryde. (very much alive) St John inherited an estate crippled with estate tax and death duties. Weighed down with fear the family will fall under his watch. Bullied by his Mother. A widower with one daughter -Bunty. His wife died 14 years ago and he never remarried. A decent man albeit flawed with pride.
Susannah Fielding, Richard Hope and Caroline Blakiston
