Daytime drama Father Brown was one of the surprise British TV hits of 2013. Mark Williams starred as the crime busting Catholic cleric who spent his free-time unraveling baffling mysteries in Miss Marple era Britain. A second 10-part season of the show premieres on 6 January on BBC1. Father Brown will remain in its mid-afternoon time slot despite the clamor from some fans to move it to a more traditional early evening drama slot.
In the first installment of the new season, Father Brown is asked to perform an exorcism at the home of Charlotte McKinley (Lizzy McInnerny). She believes she’s being haunted by her long-dead sister. Brown suspects that the sister is alive and well. Either way, he sets out to solve the mystery of the strange-goings on at Cudely Manor.
