James Norton (Happy Valley, Death Comes to Pemberley) plays the role of Sidney Chambers in new six-part drama Grantchester produced by Lovely Day in association with Masterpiece. 
Robson Green (Reckless, Wire In The Blood) joins him as plain speaking, over-worked Police Inspector, Geordie Keating.  
Set in 1953 in the beautiful county of Cambridgeshire, Sidney’s unlikely partnership with gruff, down to earth Geordie is central to Grantchester.  Geordie’s methodical approach to policing complements Sidney’s more intuitive techniques of coaxing information from witnesses and suspects.  
They are partners in crime and forge a true friendship as each offers a different insight into the crimes they begin to unravel.
