Who doesn’t absolutely LOVE Mark Williams, he portrayed Arthur Weasly (Harry Potter films) and Horace (henchman) from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. This is a fun and slightly standard BBC crime drama. It is not as deeply emotionally scarring as BBC’s Broadchurch, but it’s really reminiscent of Murder She Wrote. Father Brown is a devoted man of the church. However like┬áJessica Fletcher (murder she wrote), he somehow gets into every little questionable situation, he is looking to save the souls of his flock and find the truth.

The show has a great range of characters, it is a quaint small town, it’s picturesque really. There is humor woven into each episode and it does have nice little twists and turns. I am currently completing season one, it is a fun show. Although I am partial to crime dramas. Father Brown has some balls though, he really gets up close to questionable people, and murderers, without hesitation.
