Defective Detective!
25 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First of all Father brown isn't a detective and isn't a sleuth, he is closer to a psychological profiler. He puts his head into the head of the person who performed the dreadful deed, he is not interested in whether the culprit is caught or not, but really only if his soul is saved. Who knows how many murders he 'let go', but on the whole I would think that he manages to get them to turn themselves in, after all he manages to redeem Flambeau, no easy task.

As for this series, I was rather disappointed, Mark Williams is nice enough and he is certainly not the best actor by description to play the good priest. What lets down the series are the stories and the writers, who have no idea what makes a good crime story.

If you are going to make a father brown series and call the episodes by the name of a GKC story, you could at least try to stay faithful to the plot. I really don't care much what they do with the new stories, they are poorly written and full of holes, but I do object to the episodes 'The Hammer of God', 'The Flying Stars', 'The Wrong Shape', 'The Eye of Apollo' and 'The Blue Cross', which for some strange reason have been edited beyond recognition. They would have a much better story, if they had been left alone. I know the series is proving very popular, and my views will not be held by many, all I can say is read the books and then decide if my comments are unfair.
