A very effective detective series.

It was quite difficult for ATV to adapt the short stories of Father Brown by G.K Chesterton in the manner in which they were written. This is due to the fact that some of the original stories don't contain enough plot to make a 50 minute episode. The writers of the series are to be congratulated and the leading performance from Kenneth More effectively demonstrates that he was a more versatile actor than one realizes. He is truly cast against type and rises to the challenge tremendously. It is true that the production values aren't exactly state of the art but for sheer storytelling, this 1974 version of "Father Brown" is worthy of repeated viewing.
