The Coroner, Father Brown and Doctors recommissioned

The Coroner, Father Brown and Doctors have all been recommissioned by BBC One Daytime.

The Coroner will return with a new 10-part series that will begin shooting in and around South Devon later this year. Father Brown has been sold to 162 territories by BBC Worldwide and a fifth series will be broadcast on BBC One in 2017. Doctors is set in a busy Midlands practice and follows the turbulent lives and loves of the staff and patients. The series is produced by BBC Birmingham Drama Village and has been recommissioned for another two years.

Dan McGolpin, Controller BBC Daytime, said: “It has been a fantastic year for original British drama in BBC Daytime and our main supplier has been the Drama Village in Birmingham. New series, The Coroner, was extremely well received and we will return to South Devon to investigate more unexplained deaths this autumn. Period drama, Father Brown, goes from strength to strength and continues to be the most popular drama series on daytime television following its fourth series this January, I look forward to series five early next year. I'm also delighted to recommission our daily weekday drama Doctors for another two years. The series is in fine form, having just celebrated its 3,000th episode with an hour-long special in September and they have recently filmed five episodes inspired by Shakespeare's sonnets as part of the BBC Shakespeare Festival, to air from 18 to 22 April. BBC One offers the audience a greater range of daytime television genres than anyone else and is the only channel to invest in original daytime drama."
