In the title compound, [CuBr(C13H12N2S)2]·H2O, the CuI atom adopts a slightly distorted trigonal-planar coordination arising from two S atoms of two diphenyl­thio­urea ligands and a bromide ion. There are two intra­molecular N—H⋯Br hydrogen bonds completing twisted six-membered rings with R(6) motifs. The dihedral angles between the aromatic rings in the ligands are 62.11 (13) and 85.73 (13)°. In the crystal, components are linked by N—H⋯O, O—H⋯S and O—H⋯π inter­actions. There also exist π–π inter­actions with a distance of 3.876 (2) Å between the centroids of benzene rings of two different ligands. Together, the inter­molecular inter­actions lead to a three-dimensional network.
