UK crime drama Father Brown has been commissioned for a seventh series.
Based on the stories by GK Chesterton, the series stars Mark Williams as the crime-solving Catholic priest.
Set in the UK’s Cotswolds and filmed across several locations in the Midlands, including Blockley and Worcester, the returning ensemble includes Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack), Inspector Mallory (Jack Deam) and Bunty Windermere (Emer Kenny).
When Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) returns from Northern Rhodesia in need of help, Father Brown is forced to conclude that none other than Hercule Flambeau (John Light) may be her greatest ally. Meanwhile a familiar face returns to Kembleford when a notorious police killer is spotted near the village, putting Sergeant Goodfellow (John Burton) in grave danger.
Will Trotter, Head of Daytime Drama, BBC Studios says: “In this series we see anarchists, ramblers and Morris Dancers all throwing up new adventures for Father Brown but as ever, he’s more concerned with saving souls that in just bringing the guilty to justice.
“This summer was spent filming in our favourite locations across the Midlands from Evesham to Warwick and showcasing the beautiful period Cotswolds villages.”
The series is screened in over 150 countries including Australia where ABC has just completed season 6.
