Series overview

It’s 1958 and trouble is brewing in the Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester. Reverend Will Davenport (Tom Brittney) relishes his role as a firebrand vicar, willing to rock the boat and challenge conventions to help people. But the very role he loves put him at odds with his own ideals when his kind-hearted curate, Leonard Finch (Al Weaver) is caught up in a scandal. Will’s best friend, Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green), finds his principles shaken, housekeeper Mrs Chapman (Tessa Peake-Jones) is distraught, and Geordie’s wife Cathy (Kacey Ainsworth) is defiant. With new crimes around every corner, and morality and legality at loggerheads, it’s going to take all of Will’s skill and empathy to navigate these choppy waters and help the ones he loves.

Episode 4

An otherwise quiet nightshift is disrupted when a group of young American airmen are arrested for trespassing at the local quarry and brought to the station.

When one of the airmen collapses and dies, Geordie and Will must try and work out how he could have been murdered in plain sight, in police custody.

With the airmen closing ranks and saying little, Will and Geordie must navigate a complex web of loyalties and lies: who exactly are the men protecting and why?

As they probe further into the dynamics at play between this young band of brothers, the case prompts an unexpected revelation from Will which threatens to drive a wedge into his friendship with Geordie.

Is Will really the man Geordie thought he knew?

There are questions and revelations back at the vicarage too, as Leonard and Daniel spend the night reassessing their relationship – and their future – in light of Leonard’s impending trial.
