The fifth season of Grantchester concluded 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 sixth episode, which aired at 9pm on Friday 14th February 2020 on ITV:
When a woman is found dead, laid out in the shape of a crucifix on Jesus Green, Will and Geordie discover the ring on her finger proves she was married to God – and a former nun at an oppressive convent.
And as Geordie and Larry both agree – there’s nothing scarier than a nun…
At the convent they meet steely Sister Grace, who rules over her flock with an iron fist.
But even more sinister is the picture that starts to emerge as they match the nuns to a series of unsolved missing persons cases from the last five years.
This is anything but a place of sanctuary. But can Geordie and Will save its victims before it’s too late?
All the while, Will tries to deal with his own feelings of guilt – what he needs is a kindred spirit, able to salve his aching soul.
What’s certain is this won’t be a birthday he’s likely to forget any time soon…
When Leonard’s dad, Russell, arrives in Grantchester, it’s clear there’s no love lost between father and son.
But in order to heal the wounds of the past, will these two men be able to find common ground?
Grantchester is available on DVD on Amazon.
