      Previous Steven D. Greydanus Crux While not without merit, [Father Brown] has little in common either with the letter or the spirit of Chesterton's yarns. Apr 15, 2019 Full Review Mark Lawson Guardian The tone of gentle rural mayhem is reminiscent of Midsomer Murders, although Father Brown has the excuse that it is set in the 1950s rather than the supposed present-day. Apr 15, 2019 Full Review Chris Gardner Mark Williams does more than a fine job in his portrayal. His Father Brown is a fine friend to anyone who needs one and an absolute rock who you could trust with anything, including your soul. Apr 16, 2019 Full Review Jane Rackham Radio Times Mark Williams does a smashing job as GK Chesterton's mild-mannered, mystery-solving priest in this drama series first shown in 2013.
