As reviewed by 'New Times': "[T]he plot is sympathetic to Darwin as a man . . . including the fact that he had a contentious relationship with his father. . . . Sam Vlahos, a veteran television and film actor . . . found it easy to say yes to his part in 'The Devil's Chaplain'. 'It's one of the best things I've seen in a long time . . . it has significance.' . . . The significance he speaks of is the role Darwin actually played in his own melodrama of sorts. The meat of Navarre's script is based on fact, and was even approved by Janet Browne, a leading expert on the life of Darwin, and a professor at Harvard University. . . . During the historically passionate and luculent tale, there is drama, darkness, surprises, and Hitchcockian suspense. . . . Darwin still rules with the evolutionary iron fist, but was he a phony? A plagiarist?"
