Dated but Watchable
Interesting adaptation of Chestertons popular creation. the series looks its age now but is more faithful to the original books than the current BBC version.
I have had this series in my archive for a number of years now and was moved to re-watch it agin after the finale of the 7th series of the current Mark Williams led series last week.
Kenneth More was a fine actor and played Father Brown much closer to the book version than either Alec Guinness or Mark Williams. Less humourous than the other adaptations but still very entertining especially for fans of period dramas.
