The Serpent Within will really be shining a spotlight on Sullivan after actor Chambers returned to Father Brown for season 10 as a regular cast member.

Chambers was last a regular back in 2014 but due to scheduling conflicts couldn’t come back full-time, despite wanting to.

He made a couple of appearances in 2018 and 2019 before his return in earnest this year.

Chambers addressed where Sullivan has been during his time away from Kembleford: “He has been in London for the last seven years solving a lot of nastiness.

“He went to work for Special Branch investigating corruption within the police force.

“This is why he came back in 2018 because there was some corruption going on within the police force in Kembleford, and he was trying to get to the bottom of it.”

Father Brown season 10 airs on Fridays at 1.45pm and season 10 is available to watch as a boxset on the BBC iPlayer
