In January, I finished reading the short stories of Farther brown, and said I would compare the book and the TV show.

 

How I got into Farther Brown

Like most people in the UK when they are of work either sick, on holiday, or have a day of in the week I ended up watching day time television and on some of those days I watched the odd Farther Brown as it is on BBC 1 in the afternoon, also I had caught the odd episode on Alibi. Then a few years ago i had a number of Mental Health issues, which meant I was not working, this meant I was sat at home and so I got to see all the Farther Brown episodes, as I found it a comforting show. I know the idea of having some one murdered is comforting, and the killer was probably hung, but the crime was solved at the end of the show and you do not see many hangings in the show.
