It’s time for Father Brown (Mark Williams, pictured) to put away his kind-hearted words and crime-solving skills for a little while, as season five wraps up tonight. In “The Penitent Man”, reliable baddie Flambeau (John Light) makes another appearance. Our lovable priest believes an ulterior motive is at play when Flambeau is incarcerated for murder. He requests Father Brown to act as his chaplain, declaring his innocence, but at his pre-trial hearing he pleads guilty and is condemned to death. Season six of this increasingly popular drama is already underway, so fans can rest assured there will be more fanciful crimes on the horizon.
