         Join James Norton and Robson Green as the improbable crime-fighting team—Reverend Sidney Chambers and Inspector Geordie Keating, respectively—bringing justice and spiritual nourishment to early 1950s England. “Grantchester” returns after last season's cliffhanger ending for Reverend Sidney Chambers (James Norton, Happy Valley) and the woman he loves, Amanda (Morven Christie, The Replacement). What sort of future can there be for a vicar and married woman carrying her husband's child? Robson Green (Reckless) also returns as Sidney's best friend Inspector Geordie Keating in seven new episodes following the improbable crime-fighting duo.
 

Part One

It’s the week before Christmas, 1954. Vicar Sidney Chambers is engrossed with holiday duties, but distracted by an impossible situation — how can a vicar and a woman carrying her estranged husband’s baby ever make it work? If that isn’t enough to keep him busy, there’s a new case to solve. When a would-be groom is found dead with the wedding rings lodged in his mouth, Geordie is horrified: these are the hallmarks of a years-old unsolved murder.
