About the show

Father Brown cycles back on screen to solve more mysteries in the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford in series 4.

This is England in the 1950s – a countryside dotted with small villages, rural parish churches and large country houses. Father Brown investigates crimes in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. Once again, the enigmatic priest is aided by his no-nonsense parish secretary Mrs McCarthy, glamorous socialite Lady Felicia Montague and her chauffeur Sid Carter.

Series 4 sees 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 married and he is also her alibi for the night her father is murdered.
