New Series 'Father Brown' Kicks Off KCET's 'Whodunit Sundays'
Any longtime fan of public television will agree that if there must be murder, it should at least be solved by charming British people.
It's on that note that we're proud to present KCET's new Whodunit Sundays, which feature three British murder mystery shows back-to-back-to-back. New series "Father Brown" will be hopping into the 8 p.m. Sunday slot, taking the place of "Foyle's War," and it will be joined by "Inspector George Gently" and "Rosemary and Thyme." That's three rounds of classic detective work -- and enough British accents to satisfy even the biggest Anglophile among us.
Starting this Sunday, April 13 at 8 p.m., look for the mystery series "Father Brown," starring Mark Williams ("Harry Potter," "The Indian Doctor") as a Catholic priest who also happens to have a particular talent for solving crimes. The world of "Father Brown" is quintessentially English: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations and rural parish churches. Many years spent hearing his parishioners' confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the origins of evil and the workings of the criminal mind. But the stories are not concerned with judgment -- Father Brown is more interested in saving souls than in bringing the guilty to justice.
Starting on May 4, KCET favorite "Inspector George Gently" jumps into the 9 p.m. slot, replacing "Vera." We're starting from the top of season one of this show. And then stay tuned for "Rosemary and Thyme" at 10:30 p.m.
And as always, you can view all upcoming KCET shows on our schedule page.
