Listen to a Catholic Priest Detective!

GKC - larger than life
GK Chesterton's Fr Brown Mysteries hits the airwaves (again).

Radio 4 Extra is broadcasting the Fr Brown Mysteries by GK Chesterton. The first two stories featuring GKC's clerical 'detective' are online now at the BBC iplayer and the next few will feature soon.

If you have never read or heard the stories do give them a try, they are imbued with a subtle theology and GKC's wit and defence of common sense.

Also on the  BBC's iplayer you'll find the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries (a few have come and gone of late) by Dorothy L Sayers who, I seem to recall, was a friend of GKC's.
