Father Brown on BBC One is set in a fictional village in the Cotswolds during the early1950s and based on a series of original books by the author GK Chesterton. In the books, the stories were set in many different locations and settings. Although placing the action in a central location has shades of the dangerous village of Midsommer this is a very different show with a much gentler appeal. The 1950s is a popular time to set drama right now and a mixture of murder, nostalgia and a village is bound to hit the right spot with viewers.
