Meet Simon Cherry was based on a popular BBC radio program of the 1940s titled Meet the Rev. Hugh Moxey plays the title role, a Father Brown-style clergyman who solves crimes when he isn't saving souls. This time around "Rev" Cherry must prove that an wealthy old recluse wasn't murdered, as it seems. Gale Pedrick, creator of the radio series, coscripted the film with director Godfrey Grayson.. Meet Simon Cherry was evidently not successful enough to result in a film series, nor did it have enough international salability to be distributed in the States--though the film's production company, Hammer Studios, would definitely be heard from in the future.
