The star of these stories is Father Brown, a character created by writer G. K. Chesterton. Based on a parish priest who was partially responsible for Chesterton's conversion to Catholicism in 1922, Brown is a stubby Catholic priest equipped with a large umbrella, a formless outfit and a sharp insight into the human nature. The stories included here are The Blue Cross, The Secret Garden, The Queer Feet, The Flying Stars, The Invisible Man, The Honour of Israel Gow, The Wrong Shape, The Sins of Prince Saradine, The Hammer of God, The Eye of Apollo, The Sign of the Broken Sword, and The Three Tools of Death.

I like this series. Father Brown (FB) is a crime solving Roman Catholic priest in rural England. The crime solving part being much to the chagrin of the local detective inspector. FB has a soft subtle supportive approach which breaks down barriers the police would have. FB is the personification of living life with good morals. The sex is very subtle. It is not overly violent. It is okay for all ages. Often, the person murdered is a nasty person with many people who dislike them for a valid reason. Sleuthing FB must get past all these obstacles to find out who committed the murder. FB is perspicacious. The detective is hapless. The original script was based on the Victorian Age around 1912. They decided to produce this series based on the 1950's. I don't mind. 1912 would be harder to replicate. Definitions: hapless (unfortunate, unlucky, luckless); personification (embodiment, incarnation, epitome, quintessence, essence); Perspicacious (discerning, shrewd, perceptive, astute, penetrating, observant, percipient, sharp-witted, sharp)
