“As a priest, isn’t everything our business?” asks Reverend Sidney Chambers as he
gets to the bottom of another baffling murder around the placid village of Grantchester. James Norton stars as the handsome, jazz-loving vicar, with Robson Green as his law-enforcement ally, Inspector Geordie Keating.
Sidney’s innocent inquiries into one case soon propel him into a series of challenging cases, motivated by jealousy, prejudice, class conflict, and plain-old passion.
Although he lives the life of a clergyman, sometimes Sidney can’t help but fall into more worldly habits. His pursuit of love is as much a part of his story as his tireless search for justice, spiritual fulfillment, and a really hip jazz club.
The series is based on the acclaimed novels by James Runcie, and will return to MASTERPIECE Mystery for a second season, Sundays, March 27-May 1, 2016, 9pm ET on MASTERPIECE on PBS.
