Grantchester is a period drama film, a whodunit with the tag line: Faith. Love. Murder.
It is a Masterpiece Mystery in which an Anglican vicar helps a local police detective solve mysteries. It is set near Cambridge in the 1950s and is based on the Grantchester Mysteries books written by James Runcie.
I am looking forward to following the adventures of Reverend Sidney Chambers (played by James Norton) and Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (played by Robson Green) and I hope the rest of the season is as good as the first episode. I hope that it is not too presumptuous to say that I am glad to see that there will be a second season.
