Father Brown.

Celebrated author GK Chesterton's beloved character, Father Brown, is brilliantly brought to life in this charming ten-part BBC series starring Mark Williams (Harry Potter, Doctor Who). Set in the heart of 1950s countryside England, Father Brown is a kindly cleric with a talent for solving crimes. Many years spent hearing his parishioners' confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the origins of evil and the workings of the criminal mind. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest discover the truth by looking into the heart of the soul ? the passions, dark secrets and hidden desires. With the warmth of The Vicar of Dibley, the intellect of Miss Marple, the humour of Father Ted and the intrigue of Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown is a funny, compassionate and fresh new take on a classic genre.
