Based on the stories of G. K. Chesterton, Father Brown follows the crime-solving priest of St. Mary's Catholic Church in the fictional village of Kembleford in the early 1950s. The mild-mannered priest looks unremarkable, but his gentle nature and slightly crumpled look belie a razor-sharp wit and intellect. Father Brown is aided in his crime-solving activities by his parish secretary, Mrs. Bridgette McCarthy, who checks his facts and defends him from the frustration of his congregation and makes sure he eats.

Wish I could give it negative stars. Chesterton is turning over in his grave at this bastardized version of his Father Brown tales. There's nothing of Chesterton here except the name of the lead character and the outfit he wears. This series is appalling! These rewritten stories are not even logically consistent. Avoid!

Father Brown is a mystery series that is almost always a picture of the inner workings of small British country towns. The characters aren't as nasty as those on Midsomer can be, but more like Miss Marple's village characters. Unfortunately, sometimes Father Brown does lie, other times he very carefully avoids the truth so as not to lie. The episodes are a little uneven, but don't depend on sensationalism and violence, which is a pleasant change. Some are quite clever and evocative of the 1950's in which it is set. Try them and see what you think.
