Hit BBC Mystery Father Brown Coming to Local PBS Stations [UPDATED]

Another hit whodunit -- Father Brown -- is headed to the U.S. this Fall, courtesy of local PBS member stations and other public television stations!

Based on G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown stories,the series stars Mark Williams (Harry Potter, Blandings) as the eponymous Father Brown, a Roman Catholic priest who sleuths as well as saves souls in the fictional English village of Kembleford in the early 1950s.

One wouldn't know it by looking at him that he has a keen mind for solving crimes. By all appearances, he's just a mild-mannered, easily forgettable man of the cloth who, although witty, seems to be a bit worse for wear, with his slightly crumpled exterior and shambolic demeanor.

But, as they say, don't judge a book by its cover, because Father Brown's intellect is sharp as a tack. Combine that with his love and understanding of people, and you have the makings of a brilliant detective. And since he's ensconced in the Cotswold community as the parish priest of St. Mary's Catholic Church, he has insights into matters that the police don't. He doesn't judge criminals, though. He just wants to save their souls.


Costarring with Williams are Hugo Speer (Bedlam) as Inspector Valentine, head of the local police force; Nancy Carroll (Dalziel and Pascoe) as Lady Felicia Montague, a socialite; Sorcha Cusack (Casualty) as Mrs. McCarthy, the parish secretary at St. Mary's; Alex Price (Above Suspicion: Silent Scream) as Sid Carter, a petty criminal; and Kasia Koleczek (May I Kill U?) as Susie Jasinski, Father Brown's part-time Polish housekeeper.

The ten-episode first series of Father Brown was a massive daytime hit in the UK, and starting this October, it will premiere in primetime exclusively on select PBS member stations across the U.S. Filming recently wrapped on Series 2, so fingers crossed that and its ten episodes will are arrive arriving stateside. after they debut across the pond.

Here are just a few of the 40 is the ENTIRE list of PBS member stations and independent public television stations that will be debuting for Series 1 and 2 of Father Brown.starting in October. I'm in the process of confirming premiere dates and times for each station, so check back soon for the full list. (Note: All times shown are local.)
