Grantchester Returns for Season 5

MASTERPIECE's Grantchester

The wait is finally over — Grantchester returns for Season 5 with six new episodes!

As you probably remember, Reverend Will Davenport, played by Tom Brittney, is now the official vicar replacing Sidney Chambers, who left for America in Season 4. You’ll be glad to know that Robson Green, Al Weaver and Tessa Peake-Jones are reprising their roles as Detective Inspector Geordie Keating, Anglican curate Leonard Finch and housekeeper Mrs. Chapman.

There is certainly no dearth of crimes in Season 5. In episode 1, a student from a prestigious college is found dead, and Will and Geordie must infiltrate the murky world of campus politics and university societies. Then in episode 2, Will and Leonard witness a deliberate and deadly hit and run.

Although Will is busy with his duties as vicar and crime-solving sleuth, his life spices up a bit when he meets journalist Ellie Harding (Lauren Carse). Will rebukes Ellie for her sensationalist coverage of murders, yet they seem to be attracted to one another. Will the relationship test his vow of celibacy?
