Set in the 1950s in the heart of the beautiful English countryside, Father Brown stars Mark Williams (Harry Potter, Doctor Who) as the Catholic priest who also happens to have a particular talent for solving crimes.

Episode 1
This season opens with a truly shocking murder which rocks the team, and the arrival of new detective DI Humphrey Goodman, who is quite unlike his predecessor. Disorganized and gawky, Humphrey’s rather bumbling and accident-prone ways means he doesn’t make the greatest first impression on Camille, Fidel and Dwayne. All disheveled British charm – but with a razor-sharp insight into crime solving – can Humphrey win the team round and prove he’s the man for the job?
