Based on the short stories by G.K. Chesterton, Father Brown follows a kindly cleric as he solves crimes in his community. It is a quintessentially English world, with drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls, and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations, and rural parish churches. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. Father Brown discovers the truth of a crime by looking into the truth of the soul – the passions, the dark secrets, and the hidden desires.
