Afternoon Play - Bad Faith Series of plays by Peter Jukes about Jake Thorne, a Methodist minister and police chaplain who is battling with his own demons at the same time as trying to resolve the problems of his parishioners. When Lenny Henry won critical acclaim last year for his performance as Othello (cue my long-awaited opportunity to refer to the Birmingham-born Henry as the Dudley Moor) it was described as a major career change. This is not strictly true, for while this play is written by Peter Jukes rather than one William Shakespeare, it is a demanding and, most of the time, serious drama, with the odd dark quip thrown in to lift the listener out of the depressing setting, Lenny plays a Methodist minister, Jake Thome, who has lost his faith and whose work as a police chaplain in an area rife with teenage pregnancies, drug addiction and gang crime is unlikely to restore it. If this sounds familiar then that's because this originally went out in July 2008. Henry's superb performance, combined with Jukes's riveting writing, won the production deserved recognition - hence this repeat, followed by a new three-part series. -- Jane Anderson 1/4 Bad Faith As a police chaplain, it is Jake Thorne's job to offer counselling and comfort to officers in trouble, victims and young offenders. But Jake is the epitome of a bad priest. He's lost his faith and has decided, as a test for God, to behave appallingly towards those he's supposed to help.

Lenny Henry plays the minister and police chaplain questioning his religion in the first of a new series, following last week's repeated pilot. This time Jake (Henry) stands between a bereaved mother and the accidental killer of her child but, as before, it's a very smart mix of thought-provoking guestions of morality and engrossing personal stories. Peter Jukes's play steps away from obvious religious topics and instead shows faith as integral to the minister's life, making it somehow all the more real a struggle for him when he's questioning everything he believes. -- William Gallagher Jake gets involved in a restorative justice programme which tries to reconcile a bereaved mother and the woman responsible for killing her daughter.

Jake Thome is one hell of a flawed man of the cloth. Lenny Henry has, thus far, played him as cool and cocky, sneering at his own weaknesses. But this week we see a flash of the tumultuous emotions churning within. Ruth (as played by Jenny Jules), the smart doctor and long-suffering wife, insists that Jake visit his father in hospital to discuss his move to a care home. This simple request escalates into a violent confrontation with another religious leader and an explosion of homophobia and Islamophobia. Surely, this is destined for TV? -- Jane Anderson Jake takes on his arch rival and nemesis Bishop Elias Wright in a battle over the soul of a mentally unstable parishioner, fighting the good fight against homophobia and Islamophobia along the way.
