BBC

Watch Sundays at 6pm beginning January 25, 2015 on WMHT TV.

Welcome back to the world of Father Brown. This is England in the 1950s, a quintessentially English countryside dotted with small villages, rural parish churches and large country houses.

Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. Once again, Father Brown is aided by his no-nonsense parish secretary Mrs. McCarthy, glamorous socialite Lady Felicia Montague and her chauffeur Sid Carter.

In this series the priest is asked to perform an exorcism when local woman Charlotte thinks she is being haunted by the ghost of her sister who mysteriously disappeared years before. When Charlotte also disappears, Father Brown thinks there are more sinister forces at work.

Following the promotion of Inspector Valentine, Father Brown finds himself pitted against Inspector Sullivan, a careerist detective from London who’s determined not to let the priest get the better of him. Yet as ever, when Father Brown solves crime he isn’t meting out justice. He’s trying to save souls.

Full of humour and compassion, but with a big dramatic twist each time, this series remains true to the period charm of the original character and setting while bringing a sharp contemporary edge to the storytelling.
