—GRANTCHESTER returns to MASTERPIECE with a new vicar: Tom Brittney—
It’s 1956 in Grantchester, and the post-war rulebook is being torn up – it’s the birth of the teenager, the era of Elvis. There’s change at the vicarage, too. Reverend Sidney Chambers is feeling adrift.
He needs a little danger in his life, which is exactly what he gets when American civil rights activist Violet Todd arrives in the city and fires up his need for social justice.
And soon enough, there’s a new Vicar of Grantchester: firebrand Will Davenport (Tom Brittney/ OUTLANDER, CALL THE MIDWIFE ). Idealistic and energetic, Will is a man of the people. He rides into the village on a motorbike, listens to rock ‘n roll and encourages the congregation to call him by his first name – all of which leaves Mrs. C. appalled.
And while Will embraces the future, Inspector Geordie Keating is left entirely baffled by it: Cathy is suddenly cold and distant, he can’t find anything in the new police station where he has to share an office with a new DI, and there’s the feeling that the other officers are starting to think he’s a bit of a throwback.
Throughout all of this upheaval, one constant remains: there is injustice in this world, and whether it’s Sidney, Will, or even Leonard, Geordie knows that sometimes a vicar can be a detective’s best friend.
