Heaven help the murderer who crosses paths with G.K. Chestertons beloved detective, Father Brown. Seemingly distracted and even a bit dotty, the kindly priest always manages to confound criminals with his keen observations and inescapable logic. He prefers to go unnoticed, dismissed as irrelevant -- until the moment of truth, when he unravels the most devious schemes.
Kenneth More truly inhabits Chestertons unlikely hero in these six classic television tales, as seen on the PBS Mystery! series. The New York Times lauded the series for "capturing Chestertons distinctive spirit and sense of humor" and Kenneth More for playing Father Brown with "low-keyed but clearly defined perfection." Youll surely agree that the good fathers sly wit, benign manner, and steel-trap mind never fail to delight.
Includes G.K. Chesterton bio and cast filmographies.

The story lines are slow to evolve and very uninteresting. If not for the beauty of the locations they would be a total cure for insomnia!Published 20 months ago by LeeTrue

Don't know it I was thinking it was going to be like Father Dowling series.
But this was a great disappointment, from storylines to acting. Read more
