Couldn't have put it better myself - love Lady Felicia too and wish she and Sid were in more. Lovely to see guest appearances from Hugo Speer and Tom Chambers too. Here's to seeing them ALL again in Series 9

FATHER BROWN SERIES 8.........Filming has started, in the Cotswolds.🙂
0 26 M Meier  April 12, 2019
We LOVE Father Brown!!! We've seen every episode at least once and are eagerly awaiting new ones. We live in the States, so don't get the shows as quickly as we'd like, but it's worth waiting for!!! Please keep it going - with the same cast (who are AWESOME)!!
0 20 Roberta Blackmore  March 19, 2019
This is our favorite show - the Father Brown portrayal is wonderful and supporting actors all lovable. The acting, sets and filming are fresh and extremely well done - not to mention the writing, which presents plots that are original and inventive. Every episode is different and varied, with convincing detail and unexpected twists. The atmosphere transports us to a different time when life was a little less complicated and so charming. Bunty is delicious and Mrs. McCarthy is authentic and very special. Please,please continue this series! We even watch the reruns again and again.
0 5 Carmine Puniello  February 12, 2019
When is the Air Date of Season 8?
1 3 Ron Barrett Carmine Puniello  February 12, 2019
Series 7 was first aired on January 7th 2019.
There is no news on when Season 8 will commence filming.?
0 7 Ron Barrett  February 5, 2019
I think it must be time for Father Brown - The Movie?
0 6 T Butler Ron Barrett  February 5, 2019
Such a great idea!
0 3 Helen Kelley Ron Barrett  March 23, 2019
Once you get a movie, there is no more series programming. Everyone clammed for a Miss Fisher Murder Mystery movie. Well it has taken approximately 3 yrs to make one, and out with the series. Give some strong consideration before requesting a movie. Series 6 of Father Brown only had 10 episodes. We see that Series 7 also has 10 episodes. Series 5 had 15 episodes. Slowly Father Brown is fading away. For MSMM, Essie Davis's acting schedule and cost to have her on the show got to be much more costly, and out went the series. They are making an updated version of MFMM with Miss Fisher's niece. However, Essie Davis made that series special.
0 0 Ron Barrett Helen Kelley  March 23, 2019
The reduction in episodes, after series five, was necessary because the cast where physically exhausted. Add to that availability of cast members, to match the filming schedule, has always been a problem.
1 3 Barbara Jean  February 5, 2019
I must echo what all the individuals have said here. We truly love Fr. Brown; story, location, actors, just all of it. Sorry to say here in Florida, we only see it on PBS and they have shown it through Series 5, so you can see we are pretty far behind. I only wish the stations would show more current episodes rather than doing all the reruns. But, being PBS means they depend on donations to operate and perhaps their budget is such that they can not purchase new episodes. One can only hope they see the light and bring on new stories. None-the-less, please keep it all coming. One day, we will see it all, hopefully. Good job done by all. Many thanks.
0 2 KatB Barbara Jean  February 16, 2019
Netflix has Father Brown through Season 6. I read somewhere that Netflix may have season 7 by April..... but that is a big maybe at this time.
1 4 Constance  January 15, 2019
I am thrilled to add my 'comments' among this highly visual group's statements. Yes, I do fully support 'Dr Blakes Murder Mysteries' up here in Canada. Please return this program in its entirety! Also please continue with each actor in place which means 'Craig', [a great actor] the main individual which this series is built upon! Forget the 'person' who is trying to pull this program into the gutter and/or bring this person out of hiding so we can better judge her. Wishing the best for this series to be shown again in 2019! There are thousands of us who signed a petition for the 'Dr.Blakes' program to be shown 'as originally' designed. Thank you! Another supportive member of the Dr. Blake Audience.
0 6 Helen Kelley  September 29, 2018
Bill I agree with you. In 2014 I gave up my TV + cable. I have been an Anglophile for 36 yrs, and now have a very large collection of British detective/spy/drama/comedies/BBC Radio on VHS, DVD and CDs. My collection, together with shows like Father Brown, Dr. Blake, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries and British period programming, + Nero Wolfe (Timothy Hutton & Maury Chaykin), or the History/Science Channel are what entertain me every evening. There is so little current American programming that interests me--watch on Netflix or Hulu. Thank goodness for British programming that fills in 75% of the programming I watch.
0 1 Gary Reid Helen Kelley  November 22, 2018
Agree with you Helen. Would certainly like to know why ABC in Australia did not renew Miss Fisher. They must have made a few pennies in selling it to other countries! I download any shows that strike my fancy. I do have cable though t o follow my favourite Blue Jays from Toronto.
0 1 Gary Reid Helen Kelley  November 22, 2018
Still do not understand the scheduling of Father Brown. Afternoons and all within at 2 or 3 week period. Why is this not a nighttime scheduled show? I don't know where Father Brown is in Canada where I live..... I download directly off the 'net. ❤
0 1 Kimbridge Gary Reid  January 20, 2019
I believe a movie is coming. I hope it's this year I love miss Fisher. And I love father brown. There should of been more seasons of miss Fisher it's very popular
0 13 ShannonH  July 26, 2018
I love this show! I was looking for a show to watch on Netflix, saw the description of Father Brown and was intrigued. I thought I would give it a try. I watched one episode and was hooked! I love the characters and the actors who play them. As what appears to me like most of the shows fans I miss Sid and Lady Felicia and I wish they would return to the show. I do like the addition of Bunty and I think she fits in nicely but we need Sid and Lady Felicia back too! Looking forward to the next season!!
0 11 Jeff Payant  July 10, 2018
One of the best shows on Tv. Keep it coming!
0 8 Raquel Musgrave  June 26, 2018
My husband and I are fans of this show! So refreshing to be able to watch something that even our Grand Kids can watch, without blushing. The acting is superb, and we love the English countryside!
Thank you for a superb job!
0 7 Ron Barrett  June 25, 2018
The new series of Father Brown has been filming in the Cotswolds, and, series 7 will be aired early 2019?
0 4 Dale Blackmore  June 25, 2018
This is a wonderful show - well written with superb acting and filmed in the lovely English countryside and village of Kembleford. The roles are beautifully portrayed and all the regulars, including the adorable Bunty and Inspector Mallory, are so endearing that our family adore them all. We make a point not to miss the airing of any episode and watch and rewatch them countless times. Please continue filming this series!

OH My I love Bunty. she is a mixture of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe in looks, only taller. she is definitely lovely. xo
0 6 Carol Sheffield Howard  May 18, 2018
I love Father Brown, I will be devastated if it is not renewed> Even my husband watches it with me. we never watch anything together. I am half English and my family has been in England since 900AD. I long for a cottage in an old village like Kembleford. I love being there and the scones Mrs. M. makes are so delicious looking. I love hot tea. I so miss my other country. I love the beautiful countryside. it is so hard for me living in America when I have inherited so much of the English blood and genes. I love being in kembleford and I love all the characters. its like being Home for me. Now I am going to start over and watch Season 1 again. Carol Howard
1 5 DarylH  May 15, 2018
A great show for the whole family. Very well written too. We are hoping to see more seasons.
0 8 Ron Barrett  May 10, 2018
Well, the film location signs have started to appear, in the Cotswolds, and I think maybe filming for a new Father Brown series, is well underway?
1 5 SuzanneK  May 2, 2018
Love Father Brown and all the characters both present and past. Felicia and Sid returned for the 5/1 episode and it was delightful. I miss Felicia but I think Bunty has stepped in beautifully. Love the police force as well - they make the show very campy. I look forward to setting aside the time each week to watch this series. Also love Dr. Blake, White Chapel, Hinterland - pretty much everything from the BBC. Perhaps I should move across the Pond - ha!
0 4 Carole Angus  May 2, 2018
Great to see the return of Lady Felicia and Sid in 5/1/18 showing. A treat to see the great Richard Harrington, from Hinterland and Poldark in this episode. Looking forward to seeing more episodes with all three.
0 2 T BUTLER Carole Angus  May 2, 2018
Thank you so much for mentioning the return of Lady Felicia and Sid in 5/1/18 showing! I had stopped watching Father Brown but this is such exciting news I will watch immediately!! I do love the cast when it has these two amazing and lovable characters!!
0 0 Dianna Stewart Carole Angus  May 17, 2019
Here in the USA we are only on season 5 in our area... Saw Lady Felicia leave and Bunty come but never found out why they said Sid left? What happened in the May 1st episode that they came back and is that season 7 and what number episode to look for? Some comments mentioned "Mallory" who is that? Can some one fill us in? Thanks!!!

Any word on season seven .....love father brown! Such a great show! My all time favorite! Good clean fun!
1 3 Ron Barrett  April 8, 2018
The BBC have not (to date) renewed Father Brown for series 7.
I have not seen any of the actors, either. Some of them stay at the hotel where I work, during filming. I’ll update this should things change, but, they have normally commenced filming by now ?
