Sheri­dan Smith plays sin­gle mum Sam who’s strug­gling on a zero-hours con­tract as a cleaner at a stock-trad­ing firm in Lon­don. In this six-part drama, Sam has a gam­bling ad­dic­tion and is bat­tling her ex Dave (Matthew Mc­Nulty), who wants cus­tody of their kids. But when Sam gains ac­cess to il­licit in­sider info she de­cides to use it to play the stock mar­ket. But it’s a risky busi­ness...

There’s may­hem in the sleepy Cotswold vil­lage of Kem­ble­ford, as Fa­ther Brown re­turns with brand-new cases.

His first story on Mon­day kicks off in dra­matic fash­ion when wealthy opera leg­end Dame Bianca Nor­man is relieved of her jewels and then killed when the train she’s on is plunged into dark­ness. This se­ries opener also sees the sur­prise reap­pear­ance of Lady Feli­cia (Nancy Car­roll) from Rhode­sia.

The train rob­bery then takes an­other wor­ry­ing turn when Lady Feli­cia and Mrs Mc­Carthy (Sor­cha Cu­sack) end up be­ing taken hostage by the vi­o­lent thieves. Fa­ther Brown rushes to help. But can he find them be­fore it’s too late?

The new se­ries also sees him deal with a troupe of ac­tors try­ing to start a rev­o­lu­tion, a haunted-house story, and a dark time for Sergeant Good­fel­low (John Bur­ton).

Fast-paced fun

But Mark Wil­liams, who plays the Catholic priest turned sleuth, says he loves scenes in­volv­ing chases, stand­offs and dan­ger!

‘We get to be a bit ju­ve­nile, have guns and jump off things,’ he laughs. ‘I en­joy the phys­i­cal side of act­ing. And hope­fully the se­ries just keeps

get­ting bet­ter!’
