What’s happened to Sid from Father Brown?

To satisfy my visitors searching for news of Sid, Lady Felicia’s chauffeur from Father Brown, I used my best magic spells and located his current location: starring as the grown-up Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre in London.

And here he is…

  2. This is great news, thanks for this, I wondered what he was up to. He definitely deserves this role too, he was of the only redeeming features of the Father Brown BBC series!

      I love Father Brown. Its a really great show, that doesn’t have all the nastiness al other shows out there. i actually enjoy watching it. But Bunty is ruining it. I never liked Sin, and in fact, most people I know who watch Father Brown never liked him, But Lady Felicia was wonderful. Its not a show aimed at young boys, so I don’t see how a typical snarky, big breasted chic is going to help. I still love the show, even with the annoying Bunty.

        Finally the 2017 episodes are being shown but what a disappointment not having Sid and Lady Felicia – changes the show and not for the better. I loved the whole cast of Father Brown and the stories (not so much for the Inspector) and hope the producers hear the voices of the people asking for the original cast. Why change a perfect ensemble of actors who make the characters they portray so affable.

      Exactly. I loved it. It kept on getting better and better up until Lady Felicia left, and Bunty showed up, and the tone became different Everything that made father Brown different then the other shows is being stripped away. The majority of the audience is fairly conservative, and doesn’t want to see sexed up women, or even have moral lessons about how we should all be liberal. Go back to just being an enjoyable mystery series, and don’t try to shock us.

        I totally agree with you. Bring back Nancy Carroll and get rid of Bunty. Many of my friends in the US are upset that Carroll is not on—and I hope Alex Price is going to stay on–he wasn’t on the Father Brown show that I just watched. Please don’t break up a good acting team.

        I totally agree, my husband and I watched it the other night and DID NOT like the new cast, especially that new girl, annoying voice and actions. We don’t need sexed up women or even moral lessons, Father Brown was a pleasant show without all that bull, the liberals are trying to throw at us. Go BACK to the great enjoyable mystery series you were. PLEASE. Loved Lady Felicia scream and character as well as Sid who was a delight.

  5. I never was a Sid fan, but I do like Alex Price – he comes across like such a nice person when he is not acting! He suits the role of grown-up Draco Malfoy, I think. Now that you’ve got me started, I’ll have to look up the rest of the cast of this play.

    The new Father Brown has not yet made it to German TV.

    I love Sid and Lady Felicia as part of the cast of characters I got to love. I hate it when casts change in a series I love. I know they often have other movie, theatre and tv commitments but as a selfish fan I like my cast to never change.

      I’m like that too..you learn to adapt but you always think it was better with the original cast ..well at least Mark Williams and Sorcha Cussack are still there..is the inspector meant to be that crass I keep thinking of a rat crossed with a weasel when I see Jack Neams portrayal.

    I think that series five is the end of Father Brown and it has been such an enjoyable show. However this last series has changed and the story lines have become rather American. I still scan the TV guide looking for reruns. Being Canadian means I am bombarded with American trash.

    The 2017 version of Father Brown is greatly disappointing. The script writing has diminished as well as the characters. Lady Felicia and Sid were ideal actors for this show…too bad they are no longer featured.
    The Inspector, omg way too over the top, for this show, time for him to be replaced by someone more ” charming “.
    Hopefully Father Brown will regain its great writing and story lines once again with the former cast.
    It was a real pleasure to watch, even the reruns…not sure what end happened to a fine show on BBC.

      Unfortunately, that is exactly what Father Brown has become! I was mortified by the episode 5, the first one of season 5 that I saw. You described that episode in your first sentence, point for point. Just awful! They not only need to bring back Lady Felicia, Sid, and the Inspector but also the old writers and directors or scrap the whole series all together.

    I so agree with statements above; the original dynamics of the show has seriously deteriorated without the complete cast of Sid and Lady Felicia.

Return to the bones of the original story line and this will run forever and the fan base will increase two-fold. We can watch trash tv every day in US this is why we watch more of BBC….but sadly this is going in that direction…please hear the voice of the fans. Sharon Satterfield

    I am an American viewer and just loved the show up until of course they pulled two of the characters that made the show so enjoyable – Sid and Felicia, who else? Better than writing them out, and technically they never wrote-out Sid, they should have kept Sid and done some magnetism between him and Bunty. I’m sure those two just went to other performances that conflicted with FB.

    I loved the show, but I miss Sid and want him to come back after Harry Potter is done . I can’t really watch the show without him. He’s like a mate’s mate: funny, sometimes goofy; but a good bloke to have your back, then grab a pint wit’. Sid brought a really great, masculine-boyish element to the show. Sid needs to come back and find his Nancy…haha. Seems to be a bunch of hens now. Oh, and a daft copper! To anyone that thought his character was a bad element to the show, see my two fingers and bugger-off ( nothing but mammys and nans watching now.. poppycock).
