Father Brown is always a delight to watch, his wit is always worth watching but it is also amusing. The current forensic advances would help some of the useless policemen in one of the stories but we have to remember this isn't set in current times! This isn't as deep as some of his other works but the underlying messsage is still there. GK Chesterton is always a delight but these stories bring him very much to life - well worth watching.
