Mrs McCarthy’s new love in­ter­est!

Par­ish sec­re­tary

Mrs McCarthy (Sor­cha Cu­sack) has taken a shine to de­vout church­goer Patrick O’Leary (Mr Sel­fridge’s Sean Cam­pion) and is de­lighted when his niece in­vites her to din­ner.

But Fa­ther Brown be­comes sus­pi­cious about Patrick when a woman dies just be­fore she’s about to re­veal a dev­as­tat­ing se­cret…


‘Patrick does seem the per­fect gen­tle­man,’ ex­plains Fa­ther Brown ac­tor Mark Williams about Mrs McCarthy’s Prince Charm­ing, who ap­pears in Tues­day’s episode.

‘When things be­gin to go wrong, Fa­ther Brown can’t quite work out what’s go­ing on un­til he sud­denly gets it – but has he got time?’

As the sev­enth se­ries comes to an end this week, Mark says he’s amazed by the show’s world­wide fol­low­ing.

‘It’s re­ally pop­u­lar,’ he says. ‘Peo­ple say, “Oh, you’re Fa­ther Brown,” And I go, “Yes, I am,” in what­ever lan­guage is ap­pro­pri­ate!’
