Hammer of God

Season 1, Episode 1: Series Premiere

Father Brown attends a tea party for the unveiling of a new church clock tower, presided over by his friend Reverend Bohun. Just after the bells chime for the first time, Bohun's dishonorable brother Norman's body is found behind the church, the back of his head bludgeoned with a hammer. The local blacksmith is immediately suspected, but his wife, who had an affair with Norman, confesses to the crime and is arrested by Inspector Valentine. Father Brown must find the real killer before an innocent woman is hanged.

The Crackpot of the Empire

Ventriloquist Uncle Mirth invites his brothers George and Mortimer, Father Brown and others to a party.  But, oddly, they find themselves in a derelict building with no apparent exit.  George and Mortimer are killed and it would appear that Uncle Mirth wants revenge on those who had him committed to an insane asylum two years earlier. The survivors escape but Father Brown suspects that one of them may be in league with, or manipulating, Uncle Mirth for their own ends.
