Stylish Television – Father Brown

Working from home can often mean you develop some guilty pleasures when it comes to your television viewing habits. My current guilty pleasure is Father Brown, starring the wonderful Mark Williams as GK Chesterton’s crime solving vicar. The current series is the fifth for the unlikely sleuth, who has solved a whole host of crimes with the help of his house keeper Mrs McCarthy and his friends Lady Felicia and her niece Bunty. It is a gentle, funny and totally watchable series that I watch whilst eating lunch, all the time trying to solve the crime too.

Father Brown is set in the 1950s, and the lure of the beautiful period costume is definitely something that keeps me returning to watch. Lady Felicia, played by Nancy Carroll is a Grace Kelly style elegant blonde, and the Grace Kelly influence also stretches to her wardrobe which is full of beautiful dresses with full or pencil skirts, short fur jackets, pill box hats and 1950s evening wear. I particularly love this decade when it comes to style, and Lady Felicia frankly has a wardrobe you could easily fall into and never come out again – it is that good. If you enjoy watching television when you are home, watch without interruptions with the best gaming headset for glasses wearer to help reduce pressure on your head from glasses.

In the latest series, Lady Felicia’s niece Bunty has joined the action. Played by Emer Kelly, she has a style all of her own, a younger spin on the 1950s looks that include tweed style jackets, pedal pushers and neck scarves worn at jaunty angles for a cute, youthful look. Emer’s style is one part Marilyn Monroe, mixed with two parts Debby Reynolds, and it works so, so well.

  1. I recently stumbled across this on TV the other day. Was pretty good.
    The fashion though is fabulous. I love ’50s styling, so feminine.

  2. This looks like a good tv show never seen it before. I’m not a fan of 50s fashion, but i’m sure it will look great on you x
