I like this DVD series. Father Brown (FB) is a crime solving Roman Catholic priest in rural England. The crime solving part being much to the chagrin of the local detective inspector. FB has a soft subtle supportive approach which breaks down barriers the police would have. FB is the personification of living life with good morals. The sex is very subtle. It is not overly violent. It is okay for all ages. Often, the person murdered is a nasty person with many people who dislike them for a valid reason. Sleuthing FB must get past all these obstacles to find out who committed the murder. FB is perspicacious. The detective is hapless. The original script was based on the Victorian Age around 1912. They decided to produce this series based on the 1950's. Mrs. M is the secretary for the church. Sid is the driver of the rich civilian. Sid and Mrs. M both help FB with his investigation. They are all friends. M is a busy body who knows if someone has an alibi or motivations. Sid is a second set of eyes who can ask the servants about hidden truths. FB catches the clues left that the police detectives miss. FB has a keen understanding of the human condition. FB is very good at finding the motive for the actions of others. FB finds and reveals the hidden truths. FB is a kindly, cassocked effective crime-solver. About the author, Gilbert Keith Chesterton (GKC): GKC converted to Christianity as an adult. In 1922 GKC confirmed his Catholic beliefs. GKC was born May 29, 1874 in Kensington, London, England. GKC died June 14, 1936 from natural causes. GKC wrote 80 novels, some plays and poetry, 200 short stories, 4,000 essays. He was well known while he was alive. The 48 FB series was part of the 200 short stories.

'Father Brown' has made it British television in two series. Kenneth More starred in the original series in 1974. More was an established star of the big screen until he apparently ran his critical mouth of more influential people than himself. But I liked his performances. The current Father Brown series stars Mark Williams. He has no pizzazz at all. But we want to fill up our lives and are apparently willing to watch so-so programming. Most interesting is Father Brown is a Catholic in a country that rejected Catholicism centuries ago because the Catholic Church wouldn't grant a divorce for an English king's desire for a woman other than his wife. As for the mysteries themselves, the police come across as stupid.

This is an ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL series. Each mystery is solved within the 45 minute episode. The writers of this series has developed a character and supporting characters that really work together well. It is funny and heartwarming. Fr. Brown not only is solving the case but assisting the victims and criminals to find peace through God. These are really talented writers that wrote a first class character. I also like it because it's a relatively clean show. I'm so glad that I found this series and am excited to watch season 1 and 3. I hope to get the chance to watch all 10 episodes of season 2 before I have to return them to the library.
