Father Brown returns to solve more mysteries in the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford. This charming series is based on the character created by G K Chesterton.
Welcome to rural England in the 1950s – a countryside dotted with small villages, quaint parish churches and large country houses.
In the quiet village of Kembleford, local priest Father Brown puts his unique talent for solving crimes to use. And as usual, he’s joined by a cast of charming characters including no-nonsense parish secretary Mrs McCarthy and rebellious socialite Bunty.
Canon Fox (Roger May) is amazed when the Kembleford Choristers, led by Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack), make it through to the final of the Three Counties Choir Competition at Worcester Cathedral. On the day of the final, one of the Choristers falls ill, and a reluctant Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) agrees to step in so the team can participate.
On the way to the cathedral, their omnibus suddenly breaks down and Bunty (Emer Kenny) reveals that the fuel line has been cut. Suspicion immediately falls on rival choir the Hambleston Harmonisers, led by Lawrence Ashton (Hugh Sachs).
The Choristers, also comprised of Sergeant Goodfellow (John Burton), Audrey Belchant (Daisy Maywood), Wesley Summerton (Ashley Campbell), and Nicholas and Barbara Curtley (Joseph Prowen and Sarah Ingram), must race against time to get to Worcester before they are disqualified, all while Father Brown (Mark Williams) works to discover who’s out to get them.
