Good afternoon viewing
1 February 2013 | by stephen-wagstaff2See all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this BBC adaptation of GK Chestertons, Father Brown stories. It was really perfect viewing for a winters afternoon. Having read all the stories I realise that some people will not be happy with the way this adaptation has been made. In particular Mark Williams as Father Brown was far from the physical image Chesterton created in the stories. I for one don't think this matters as Williams gives an excellent performance in my opinion. The setting is perfect postcard England. There is a few plot holes in the episodes if you compare them to the stories, but I hope this series will attract more people to read the stories. As a lover of the English crime drama I for one hope that they make another series, there is still plenty of stories to adapt after all.
