Tune In To BBC's Fr Brown To See Princethorpe On TV

A different view of the College will be available this week when an episode filmed over the summer holidays at Princethorpe of the BBC’s new series Father Brown is screened.

The series is based on G K Chesterton’s stories involving the crime-solving Catholic priest Father Brown, played by the Fast Show and Harry Potter films' Mark Williams.  The episode filmed at Princethorpe is entitled Bride of Christ and is due to be shown on Monday 21 January at 2.15pm on BBC1.

A sneak preview of the episode reveals that when two nuns die in mysterious circumstances at St Agnes convent (aka Princethorpe), Father Brown investigates with the aid of Sister Boniface, an eager young fan of detective novels.

Tune in, set those recorders or visit BBC iPlayer and look out for some of our pupils who appear as nun extras!
