The series is a BBC Studios Birmingham Drama Village production and filming for the ten-episode first season of Father Brown began in the summer of 2012 in the Cotswolds.  The BBC renewed Father Brown in 2013 for a ten-episode second season. A third season of 15 episodes was commissioned in 2014. A fourth season of ten episodes was commissioned in 2015.  The BBC series filmed several episodes in some of Oxford`s best filming locations, which are also home to other popular big-screen filming locations. St Peter & St Paul Church, Blockley and the Riley RMA, which was used for the filming of Father Brown Despite what I have been told, the relationship between this story and Double Identity is more superficial than substantial. Walter is not an insurance agent, there is no Edgar G. Robinson is a character who acts as a father figure and nemesis, and Phyllis is not an unfaithful wife who wants to collect a huge insurance policy at the cost of her husband`s life. The town of Oxford is only an hour`s drive from the village of Blockley in Gloucestershire, where the filming of Father Brown mainly took place. Locations where Father Brown (2013 TV series) was filmed on location. Bloxham School has about 515 pupils and costs around £11,830 for the high school boarding school and was used as one of Father Brown`s filming locations. The authors had the choice of adapting an existing story or developing an original idea.
Chesterton`s stories have taken place all over the world and at different times. Although half of the episodes of the first season are loosely based on Chesterton`s stories, it was decided to limit the location and date of the series. Filming for the second season included the village of Ilmington in Warwickshire. Chastleton House and Berkeley Castle were used to represent Pryde Castle in the episode, which aired on January 8, 2014.   Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire provided the site of the famous Rosary`s final resting place in the episode Mysteries of the Rosary, which aired on January 10, 2014.  Snowshill Manor Gardens were featured in the same episode. The season 3 episode “Time Machine” was based on the Alscot Park estate in Warwickshire. However, the beautiful village of Oxford has its own direct references to the show with historic locations that take the scenes of the show as a backdrop.
The show`s popular and well-known characters have already been taken to filming locations across Oxford to shoot a variety of episodes. Father Brown has been portrayed over the years on radio, film and television around the world, the current BBC TV series that debuted in 2013 and has been renewed until this year. The era was moved to the early 1950s, when a fictional village of Kembleford takes place in the Cotswolds, a scenic area 90 miles northwest of London. In fact, filming was done in Blockley, a village in the Cotswold in Gloucestershire. (And isn`t it amazing to see all the crimes that happen in such an idyllic setting?) On-site filming also includes Whitehall and Putney High Street on screen. The BBC recently finished filming at the location where it filmed the on-screen version of Hilary Mantel`s wolf Hall book. While several episodic locations are filmed in Oxford, many are a short drive from the county, which are very recognizable in the series. Filming takes place in the village of Blockley in Gloucestershire, using the Church of Saints Peter and St Paul, Blockley (Church of England) as the Roman Catholic Church of St Mary from the series and the rectory converted into a rectory of Father Brown`s residence.
 Other villages used include Winchcombe, Upper Slaughter, Kemerton and Guiting Power. Filming also took place at Winchcombe Station and Toddington Station on the historic Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. Sudeley Castle was the main setting for The Eye of Apollo.  Princethorpe College, once a Catholic monastery, now a secondary school, was used to film “St. Agnes Convent” in the first season of episode 6. Filming also took place at Ashdown WW2 Camp, Evesham, Worcestershire, where the television series The Land Girls was filmed. Camp Ashdown is a 2nd century camp. It consists of 11 Nissen huts, air raid shelters and outbuildings.  Shire Hall, Warwick, seat of Warwickshire County Council, Bloxham School in Oxfordshire and the Worcester Guildhall were also used in the 1930s.  The old Moreton-in-Marsh Hospital was used for the new police station and for Father Brown`s kitchen, office and rectory.   Excellent point – I was wondering what this racket could be. And I`m sure there`s room for an episode where a plump but spectral character methodically eliminates the cast and crew, one by one. The series is set in England in the early 1950s.
Father Brown is the priest of St. Mary`s Catholic Church in the fictional village of Kembleford in Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds. Britain was grappling with the aftermath of World War II and rationing was still in place. An empathetic and intelligent man, Father Brown solves murder cases when members of his ward are involved, when circumstances are strange enough to pique his interest, or when he is asked directly for help. During his investigations, Father Brown sometimes neglected his more mundane duties in the parish. The former Moreton In Marsh Hospital, Gloucestershire-geograph-2465395 G.K. Chesterton, creator of Father Brown, was a writer, poet, playwright, philosopher, literary and artistic critic, journalist and secular theologian. Father Brown first appeared in Chesterton`s short story “Valentine Follows a Curious Tale” in 1910. This story, published in the American Saturday Evening Post, later appeared as “The Blue Cross” in london`s Story Teller magazine. The series was also released on DVD (but not Blu-ray) in the United States, Australia, the Netherlands and Germany.
I confess that I have not seen any other episodes of the series – if it has been shown here (many British crime series are), I missed it – so I will take your word for it to say that the plot is ugly overall. The Cotswolds were chosen because they had few modern buildings and were located close to the Birmingham production plant. The 1950s were chosen because the detective could solve puzzles with his intelligence and knowledge of human nature instead of relying on modern technology. Nevertheless, the script sometimes contains anachronistic language (e.g., “secure crime scene”, “mojo”). The main writers, Rachel Flowerday and Tahsin Guner, created the supporting characters. Other writers contributed to independent scripts that were not part of a story arc.  The Laws of Motion, episode 10 of the second season of Father Brown, first aired on the BBC in January 2014; The series began in 2013 and, as far as I know, is still ongoing. The episode isn`t quite the black curiosity I expected, but it`s nice to see the classic genre being paid homage in a modern TV series. At the same time, it would be funny if someone could one day produce a Father Brown TV series that stars Father Brown, as opposed to an almost completely independent character of the same name.
