It starts at what is on the screen called The British Embassy, Lusaka, Northern Rhodesia. The story takes place in the 1950s, when Northern Rhodesia was a British colony. Colonial powers don't have embassies in their own colonies. In fact, no embassies exist in colonies, only in independent countries. See more »

Pure, total, absolute joy.
31 August 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Series seven ends on a massive high. The Honourable Thief is a joy from beginning to end. It is intensely funny, intriguing and beautifully dramatic.

Flambeau is called in to help Father Brown for a change, and is of course a thorn in the side of everyone. John Light always adds something, and this episode is no exception.

Wonderful to see Nancy Carroll back, and boy was she good, absolutely hilarious as the maid, a real high point for the show. She is much missed.

One of the standout episodes of Father Brown, I laughed and felt entertained from start to finish. I thought this was terrific. 10/10
