Plot[ edit ] The series is set during the early s, in the fictional Cotswold village of Kembleford, where Father Brown, priest at St Mary's Catholic Church, solves murder cases.
A bumbling police inspector , who often arrests the wrong suspect, gets annoyed by Father Brown's success. Father Brown uses the distinctive skills of his close friends as well as his own wits to solve cases, occasionally to the neglect of his more mundane parish duties.
