Have you watched Father Brown? It's a BBC series available on Netflix, at least in the US. It's about a Roman Catholic priest who solves murders.


The TV series is based on a series of stories. The stories themselves are contrasted to Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. While Sherlock is all about pure reasoning, Brown is more about human psychology and morality.

Chesterton, converted to Cathoilicism from Anglicanism, in that twist comparison to Sherlock is even more interesting.

The BBC, by the way did a good job and they managed to show the issues England currently faces

I would not write all that, if Chesterton didn't go to America and wrote about it. This is how he begins:

Chesterton is a very interesting writer. And one that is well worth a read even if you don't agree with his (somewhat peculiar) views....

@gamayun It's not an easy read, but i'm giving it a chance
