Father Brown Boxset of DVDs out on Monday

Father Brown, BBC's most popular daytime drama will make available the all six series on February 12th. Produced in the Birmingham Drama Village, this admired series has thrilled BBC commissioners with its excellent viewing figures.  The hero of the story is a Roman Catholic priest who can't avoid becoming involved in solving crimes, performed by Mark Williams, not unlike a gender neutral, non-judgemental Miss Maple. 
Set in the early 1950's in a Cotswold village, the series is loosely based on short stories by G. K. Chesterton and sets the sharply intellectual priest, Father Brown, against the irritated and inept members of the police force. Several detectives have played prominent roles through the 70 episodes, with none remaining throughout and with varying degrees of respect and frustration for Father Brown who is the enduring character. All aspects of life, including love, loss, deceit, humour, and sex, form the backdrop of the crime narratives, with Father Brown very committed to loving his flock and their salvation. Although the detectives come and go, Father Browns inner circle within his congregation and community aid his search for the truth, including the  loose tongued Brigette McCarthy, played by Sorcha Cusack.
