Mark Williams (Harry Potter) plays an eponymous crime-solving Roman Catholic priest. Set in the fictional Cotswold village of Kembleford, Father Brown, the priest at St Mary’s Catholic Church, uses the distinctive skills of his close friends as well as his own wits to solve murder cases. His vocation as a priest often gives him an insight to the truth, so that justice (but occasionally, not the letter of the law) may be served.
The series is set in the 1950s, at which point the country was still struggling with deprivation and shortages in the aftermath of the Second World War. Britain still applies the death penalty as a sentence for capital crimes such as murder, which Father Brown opposes.
