To celebrate the 100th anniversary of G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown mysteries, BBC One Daytime has commissioned a new 10-part drama series for January 2013 to bring the priest-turned-detective back to life.

BBC Books will be publishing a new edition of the original and complete short stories to tie-in to transmission. Set in the early-twentieth century, Father Brown's world is quintessentially English; crime scenes await in country houses, rural parish churches and quaint gardens as well as foggy London streets and shadowy railway stations.

Father Brown may be a kindly cleric, but his bumbling nature disguises a detective mind to rival Sherlock Holmes...

The character of Father Brown, brought to life by Mark Williams, is based on a real parish priest and the idea that priests, through hearing Confession, know the worst of human nature more than anyone, including the police.

Father Brown uses his experiences to put himself into the mind of the criminal to solve each mystery and catch the perpetrators.
