Heaven help the murderer who crosses paths with G.K. Chesterton's cassocked crime-solver, Father Brown. Despite his absentminded air, the kindly priest always manages to confound criminals with his inescapable logic and keen understanding of the human condition. Often joined by his friend, thief turned private investigator Hercule Flambeau, Father Brown unravels devious schemes in 1920s England.

if you can look beyond the budget sets and dated cameras you may be able to see that this presentation of Chesterton's beloved 'father brown' is superior to the empty modern revival that currently exists. This series focuses more on father browns thinking and reasoning.

This is a worthwhile alternative to the current iteration -- in this series, Father Brown is a serious and thoughtful person who has no home parish and seems to be traveling all the time. The sets are simpler; mostly indoor; it's a more theatrical production. A welcome change from the buffoonery of the current series.

Dated but charming, especially if you love G K Chesterton!

Clumsily done but true to the books.

An older version.

I concur about the accents and lack of closed-captioning. These stories have so much potential. I hope someone picks them up and tries again.

Couldn't endure the horrible acting for more than 20 minutes. Very disappointing for a British drama. Shockingly bad.
