Mark Williams stars as Father Brown, a clergyman with a particular talent for crime-solving. Assisted in his efforts by a motley, and not always godly, squad of allies, he investigates crimes to save souls. New episodes arrive every Tuesday.
Father Brown returns to solve more mysteries in the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford in this charming series based on the short stories by G K Chesterton. This season sees Father Brown investigate a suspicious death at a care home, and a local bowls match quickly rolls out of control when it becomes a murder scene.
This season, a man missing for years returns just as his wife is about to remarry, but when he’s found dead, suspicion falls on those closest to him. The village gets a dose of Hollywood glamour when a film crew arrives. And Sid’s romance with a brewer’s daughter gets complicated when he finds out she’s not only married and he is also her alibi for the night her father is murdered.
In this series the priest finds himself embroiled with the Secret Service, which puts Lady Felicia in a compromising position. Sid is sent undercover into a theological college to flush out a killer and Mrs McCarthy takes on a group of travellers when a local man is found dead. Finally a fugitive takes sanctuary in St Mary's. Father Brown is stunned to realise that the man in the confessional is in fact Inspector Sullivan - and he's wanted for murder.
This season, Father Brown finds himself pitted against new Inspector Sullivan, as the priest attempts to solve cases more sinister than ever - an exorcism, an abduction, a poisoning and a murder put Father Brown's instincts to the test and his own livelihood at risk.
Father Brown is based on G. K. Chesterton's detective stories about a Catholic priest who doubles as an amateur detective in order to try and solve mysteries.
Father Brown's world is quintessentially English: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, secret gardens, and rural parish churches. Many years spent hearing his parishioners' confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the workings of the criminal mind, allowing him to investigate and solve crimes in his own particular way.
