The much-loved crime-fighting priest, Father Brown, returns to ABC TV for a double-episode premiere of the series’ tenth season. Set in the picturesque Cotswold village of Kembleford in 1954 where Father Brown tackles intriguing mysteries.

In the first episode, titled “The Winds of Change,” Father Brown uncovers a sinister connection between a series of crimes and a model village in Kembleford. As he investigates, he also navigates a personal challenge—finding a new parish secretary following Mrs McCarthy’s departure. The episode explores the impact of Father Brown’s empathetic and non-judgmental nature on his investigations, a trait that often annoys the local police.

The second episode, “The Company of Men,” sees Lady Felicia’s impromptu visit coincide with Father Brown’s assistance at an exclusive gentlemen’s club.

Based on the character created by G.K. Chesterton, Father Brown has a winning blend of crime-solving, period setting, and engaging characters. The series has been a staple on British television (where it actually airs in a daytime slot) since its premiere in 2013 and has been renewed for not just a twelfth season (which is currently filming) but also a thirteenth too.
