5.0 out of 5 stars As Comforting as English Breakfast Tea
I really liked Father Brown Series 1 so I bought Series 2 sight unseen - and the whole show seems to be turning into something rather special now. Father Brown is as comforting as English Breakfast tea, but it also has the most brilliantly written crime plots (I couldn't guess any of them, damn it). This series is lovely to look at, with all the gorgeous 1950's clothes -...

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT Fr. Brown
I am a Parish Priest of a church built by the real-life inspiration for Fr. Brown (Fr. John O'Connor). The BBC Fr. Brown is nothing like either the character of Chesterton's books or the REAL "Fr. Brown". Recently I asked the head of the American Chestertonian Society for his opinion of this series. He replied that there is a T.V. series with a priest character...

This review is from: Father Brown Complete Series 2 - BBC [DVD] (DVD)
I really liked Father Brown Series 1 so I bought Series 2 sight unseen - and the whole show seems to be turning into something rather special now. Father Brown is as comforting as English Breakfast tea, but it also has the most brilliantly written crime plots (I couldn't guess any of them, damn it). This series is lovely to look at, with all the gorgeous 1950's clothes - but also a bit deeper than that.

We have watched Series 1 and 2 and liked them both. Kinda reminds us of the pace and style of Midsommer Murders (nice mystery storyline but light on the violence and gore. We will purchase Series 3 if it shows up on Amazon.co.uk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 2 is a cut above!, 1 Aug 2014

Love this series - in my opinion, series two is better by far than series one. Has evolved into a lovely little undemanding period drama. Although Mark Williams might not be the Father Brown of Chesterton's canon (no pun intended) he plays it with integrity and grace, Highly enjoyable.

This review is from: Father Brown Complete Series 2 - BBC [DVD] (DVD)
A Superb series and a very welcome addition on DVD & BluRay.

My review of Series 1 is online but I thought the stories in Series 2 were even better than in Series 1. Highly recommended.
