Father Brown Season 5 cast

Father Brown cycles back on screen to solve more mysteries in the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford in this charming series based on the short stories by G K Chesterton.

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

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

    At least you guys are treating him with respect. The rest of PBS is disgusting.

    • GGW1970

      You are obviously not watching the same PBS as I am. Every series is fantastic and most well done!

    Miss Fisher’s mysteries are the most well written and beautifully costumed show on television any country, any genre. I am from New Mexico, (not New and Not Mexico,). I watch this show with my grand daughters and we all love Miss Fisher. To end it at season 3 is totally unreasonable. Let’s get the gang back together and protest, write, blog, twitter or what ever to make them do more. I am a month from being 70, so I will write real letters. Jo White, USA.

      I agree.

      Are you the Jo White who put the Mooney family history on the Everything Cherokee website?

    Fishers mysteries, season 3 is over. Bummer. I am waiting for season 4. While I am waiting, how about a repeat of 1, 2, & 3. Doc. Martin, as Time Goes by, and Keeping up Appearance, do it. I would love to watch the repeats.
