‘Grantchester’ recap: What happened in Season 5 Episode 5?

The fifth season of Grantchester continued in the UK tonight.

ITV’s popular period drama series is based on James Runcie’s novels.

Tom Brittney and Robson Green are back as clergyman Will Davenport and DI Geordie Keating to solve more crimes in 1950s England.

Here’s a plot recap for Season 5‘s fifth episode, which aired at 9pm on Friday 7th February 2020 on ITV:

As Geordie and Will head to a charity boxing match at Vic’s gym, both men put on a brave face and hide the worries haunting them both.

Geordie’s hoping for a ‘manly’ night at the fight, with Jack and Leonard joining in the fun: an escape from the problems at home and the strain of the job.

And Will revels in the night as well, this place giving him the purpose he so desperately needs…

It’s a full house at the gym as Matthew and Luke face off in the ring, seemingly proving Vic’s belief that given a second chance, anyone can turn their life around.

But after a match takes an unexpected twist, Will wonders if he’s misjudged Matthew all along…

Meanwhile Leonard tries to reunite the warring Chapmans, who seem determined never to see eye-to-eye again.

Grantchester is available on DVD on Amazon.
