William Travis shoots the role of Maurice Cranage in Father Brown for BBC One HD.
Father Brown is a popular period drama for BBC daytime, based on the stories of GK Chesterton, starring Mark Williams, Sorcha Cusack & Jack Deam.
The series is set during the early 1950s, in the fictional Cotswold village of Kembleford, where Father Brown is the parish priest at St Mary’s Catholic Church solving crimes to the exasperation of a baffled police inspector who often arrests the wrong suspect. Father Brown uses his closest friends’ abilities to solve a case even when they are suspected of the crime; and his vocation as a priest often gives him an insight to the truth, so that justice but occasionally not the letter of the law may be served. The time period is during Britain’s emergence from the hardships of the Second World War, and the death penalty is still in effect for capital crimes such as murder.Overview
