Based on the short stories by G K Chesterton, this series follows the kindly cleric as he solves crimes in his community, the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford. It is a quintessentially English world: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations and rural parish churches. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. But the stories are not concerned with judgement - Father Brown is more interested in saving souls than in bringing the guilty to justice.
