ABOUT THE SHOW

Solving mysteries in the Cotswald

Each episode sees Father Brown investigate a crime 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.

In this series Father Brown finds himself embroiled with the Secret Service, which puts Lady Felicia in a compromising position. Will she betray her friend?

Elsewhere 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. An audacious art heist is masterminded by old adversary Flambeau, who intends to use the priest and his friends to help him settle an old score. Finally a fugitive takes sanctuary in St Mary’s and asks for help. Father Brown is stunned to realise that the man in the confessional is in fact Inspector Sullivan who is wanted for murder.
