‘Grantchester’ recap: What happened in Season 7 Episode 3?

The seventh season of Grantchester continued in the UK tonight!

Based on the novels by James Runcie, ITV’s popular crime drama is back with six brand new episodes, set in 1959.

Tom Brittney (Outlander) reprises his role as clergyman Will Davenport, alongside Robson Green (Soldier Soldier) as DI Geordie Keating.

They’re joined by Tessa Peake-Jones as Mrs C, Al Weaver as Leonard Finch, Kacey Ainsworth as Cathy Keating, Oliver Dimsdale as Daniel Marlowe, Nick Brimble as Jack Chapman, Melissa Johns as Miss Scott, and Bradley Hall as Larry Peters.

As the Reverend Will Davenport unites happy couples in holy matrimony, Detective Inspective Geordie Keating is busy as ever investigating a range of local murder cases.

With a new decade just around the corner, the question of what the future holds is on everyone’s minds, not least Will’s, but before the ’50s roll over into the swinging sixties there are some crimes to solve and some life-changing decisions to be made that might change life in Grantchester forever.

Season 7 will arrive on American screens later this year on PBS.

Here’s a plot recap for the third episode of Season 7, which aired on ITV at 9pm on Friday 25th March 2022:

A vagrant is found dead in the doorway of Leonard’s café.

Geordie can’t shake the feeling that this murder could be connected to two previous unsolved cases – is there a killer out there targeting the homeless?

A book found on the body leads Geordie to suspect the victim might be Robin Fellows, a student at the university. But fellow student Jim Baker can’t identify the body.

Their tutor is controversial lecturer Professor Edith Larson, she has a dim view of “bleeding heart liberals.”

She tells Geordie that Robin had befriended the local homeless population as part of a thesis on redemption.

And that he had left the university after a suspected breakdown. Could Robin in fact be the killer?

Meanwhile, Will realises Bonnie’s son Ernie is acting up because he’s finding it hard to express his grief over his father’s death and does his best to help.

And Mrs. C, struggling with her cancer diagnosis, feels that God has turned his back on her just when she needs him most.

Grantchester is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
