Father Brown

Father Brown is a British crime drama series produced for television by BBC Studios for BBC One and loosely based on the Father Brown short stories by English writer and philosopher Gilbert K. Chesterton. The series, set in the 1950's, follows Father Brown, a Roman Catholic priest at St Mary's Catholic Church in the fictional village of Kembleford in the Cotswolds, as he investigates murder cases and solves crimes. The title character, Father Brown, is portrayed by English actor and presenter Mark Williams (The Fast Show, 101 Dalmatians). Amongst the supporting cast are Irish television actress Sorcha Cusack (Coronation Street, Jane Eyre) as parish secretary at St. Mary's Mrs. Bridgette McCarthy, English actress Nancy Carroll (Cambridge Spies, Silent Witness) as socialite and Countess Lady Montague, and British actor Alex Price (Merlin, Doctor Who) as criminal and informant Sidney “Sid” Carter.
