Father Brown's Lady Felicia returns for Season 7 opener

Tea Time Tidbit for the week of April 1, 2019

Nancy Carroll as Lady Felicia

There’s good news for Lady Felicia fans this week! The lovely Lady, played by Nancy Carroll, will be returning to Father Brown in the opening episode of the seventh season which airs Thursday, April 4th at 9pm.

Unfortunately, Carroll’s character hasn’t returned to the fictional village of Kembleford for the entirety of the series, but she will be seen in a later episode, and I hope you agree that a bit of Lady Felicia is better than nothing.

Mark Williams as Father Brown and
Sorcha Cusack as Mrs. McCarthy

In the opening episode of Season 7, Lady Felicia and Mrs. McCarthy, played by Sorcha Cusack, go into London to see a show and end up being kidnapped! When you watch the episode, note how beautifully the moon shines down on the train. It was actually a special effect, created by filling a helium balloon up with lights, which was then suspended above the train on fine wires. Fortunately, there wasn’t a strong wind blowing the night filming took place, so the balloon stayed perfectly in place. Another bit of trickery was used to make the train carriage look as though it was moving. In reality it was a single stand alone carriage that was hand rocked by stage hands, aptly called “rockers.”

Father Brown is preceded by Death in Paradise at 8pm and is followed at 10pm by The Wrong Mans and Mum at 10:30pm. What a terrific Thursday night line up!

Sanjeev Bhaskar and Nicola Walker
in Unforgotten

Sunday evenings also have a decidedly British flair as the evening programming gets underway at 8pm with Call the Midwife, which is followed at 9pm by the third and final episode of Mrs. Wilson, and at 10pm by a a brand new series of Masterpiece’s Unforgotten. The third series of this "cold case" mystery again stars Last Tango in Halifax’s Nicola Walker and Indian Summers’ Sanjeev Bhaskar. It starts Sunday, April 7th.

So that’s lots to look forward to this week!
